Penfolds Bin 704 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Wine 750ml
Dark Cabernet fruits transfer from the nose to the palate with a silk-like flow. Animated and lithe yet still somewhat restrained, it has a humble personality but with the quiet conviction of Napa.
WE 96 Wine Enthusiast
This is the first vintage of the Australian producer’s foray into Napa Valley. It is tightly structured yet supple, bursting in bright currant and strawberry flavors. Savory components of sage, dried herb and black pepper dot the palate alongside silky tannins and chocolate-laced richness. A fresh touch of blood orange arises on the finish. Enjoy from 2028 – 2033.nbsp;
JS 95 James Suckling
A beautiful,aromatic wine with blackcurrant, cool fruit and hints of minerals and tar. Full-bodied, yet polished and really well manicured. Long and creamy. Shows tension, energy and refinement. Drink after 2024, but so beautiful already. Hard not to drink.
D 95 Decanter
Bright and vibrant in the glass with deep, dark aromas of black plum grasped in a tight-fisted blackberry glove. While the body is fashionably lean, the initially tight flavors relax to a plush embrace. More is revealed as the wine opens up in the mouth: sumptuous fruit that remains firm and politely behaved, a chew of tobacco and deliberate oak tannins that bite in the tail.
RP 91 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“A hemispherical mirror image of Bin 407,” Penfolds’s chief winemaker, Peter Gago, said with a smile. It was only then that I got that 704 is 407 backwards. “We are able to access vineyards in Napa that others can’t access,” he went on to say, referencing Treasury Wine Estates’ considerable landholdings in this region. Beringer, Sterling Vineyards, Stags’ Leap Winery, Beaulieu Vineyards, etc. “We have sensitively used small amounts from our top vineyards—requested rows in the Burgundian model.”
