Wine Advocate 92 points - Made with a blend of fruit from Wrattonbully, Padthaway, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Langhorne Creek, the 2012 Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet color with a hint of purple and a nose exuding warm blackberry compote notes, blueberry preserves, spice cake and mocha plus a touch of menthol. Medium to full-bodied, it offers mouth-filling black berry and cassis flavors with a touch of mint, a crisp line of acid and firm grainy tannins to shape the long finish.  (Oct 2014)

Wine Spectator 95 points - Vibrant, focused and elegant, but needs time to bring everything together. Offers deep flavors of currant, blackberry, potpourri and spice that weave together seamlessly against a gentle grip of tannins, expanding beautifully on the long and expressive finish. Best from 2017 through 2030. From Australia.H.S. (Oct 1 2014)

The 1964 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon was Penfolds’ first commercial release of a single cabernet-based wine. Today, Bin 707 is justifiably regarded as one of Australia’s most important cabernets. The winemaking philosophy and barrel maturation of Bin 707 is almost identical to Grange. The Bin 707 style combines intense varietal definition with new American oak to produce wines of great richness, harmony and concentration. Over the years the development of Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon has mirrored the advances in winemaking and viticulture and in this sense has served as a representation of progress and excellence within the industry. Bin 707 proudly bears the Penfolds stamp – displaying a fascinatingly complex marriage of ripe, concentrated cabernet fruit and 100% new American oak, forged together through partial barrel fermentation. It displays dark berried fruit, mocha and chocolate overtones, with warm spice notes. Bin 707 is a medium to long term cellaring style of wine. It will comfortably gain stature and complexity across more than two decades in the bottle.

Australia’s winemaking history of less than two hundred years is brief by European measures though, like Europe, punctuated by periods of extreme success and difficult times. From the earliest winemaking days Penfolds has figured prominently and few would argue the importance of Penfolds’ influence on Australia’s winemaking psyche. Without the influence of Penfolds the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer. Penfolds’ reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend. But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times. If there is anything traditional about Penfolds, it is the practice of constantly reviewing the wines it already does well, and continuously evolving and refining styles as vineyards mature and access to ever older and more varied vineyard sites improves.
