Colour: Supporting a purple rim and dense black core. Nose: A pool of fruits (blue and black) unravel to reveal blueberry, mulberry, boysenberry and blackberry. Similarly, a colourful courtier's adornment of florals and spice disrobe to release violet, wild flowers and anise, whilst shyly lowering a veil of cassis. Aeration liberates a coulis/compoté of candied fruits (incl. dried figs) and roasted beetroot, coated by an assortment of dusting powders. Palate: Focus and definition-a palate continuum with no rough edges. Harmonious and luxuriant. A glycerolic density-texturally marrow-like with squid-ink concentration-thankfully without the commensurate flavour/source. Crème de cassis effortlessly cascades from nose to palate, collecting raspberry and dark cherry fruits in passage. An oak cacoon plied with overt ripe tannins attempts to frame the package, yet a seriously lingering flavour and tactile aftertaste refuses to be curtailed.
This towering Cabernet tightly wraps its supple, expressive core of currant and boysenberry flavors with subtle hints of cream, espresso and dried herbs, flowing seamlessly into the long, vivid finish. Offers depth and power without apparent weight. A knockout. Best from 2015 through 2030. 441 cases imported.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon is an earthier style displaying classic aromas of cassis, plum and pencil shavings with some earth, olives, spice box and cloves. Very structured by firm, grainy tannins, it is concentrated and muscular with good acid freshness through the long and layered finish. It needs 1-2 years more of aging and will drink to 2030+.
