Squid ink blackness in appearance. A brooding dark amalgam of black pudding, sweetbreads and marrow. Expansive. Even. Expressive. Engaging. Enigmatic.

The flagship Cabernet Sauvignon is the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 and it comes mostly from the Coonawarra and McLaren Vale regions. Brought up all in new American oak, this brilliant effort is another tour de force from this producer that has massive notes of crème de cassis, lead pencil, vanilla bean, white chocolate, and hints of mint all soaring from the glass. Inky colored, full-bodied, and with a flamboyant, opulent mouthfeel, it opens up beautifully with time in the glass and didn't show a hint of oxidation or tiredness during the three days I followed the bottle. Aussi Cabernet Sauvignon, or Cabernet Sauvignon for that matter, doesn't get much better. Drink this magical effort anytime over the coming 2-3 decades.

Aged in American oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 stands out for its bold aromas of vanilla, tobacco and cassis. This year, it's close to 40% each from Coonawarra and McLaren Vale, with smaller proportions from Barossa Valley and the Adelaide Hills. It's full-bodied and rich, with a velvety mouthfeel, great intensity and super length. Yes, it's embryonic, but it's not unapproachable, much like any other high-quality New World Cabernet these days, with the ability to age for two decades or more.

Distinctive and rich, this shows off flashy vanilla, milk chocolate and cream soda notes up front, but then sinks into a groove of plump blackberry and black cherry flavors, revealing dashes of black pepper and cigar box. The tannins are dense yet polished. Presents plenty of harmony on the finish, with a vanilla bean hint weaving in and out. Drink now through 2039. 584 cases imported.

The nose is a heady combo of lifted red currant, red licorice, flowers, mocha and mint. It's also a touch meaty and the oak spice-from 20 months in new American oak barrels-is also apparent. The palate is big but poised and lifted by tangy, curranty fruit and a velvety, almost creamy texture. It is currently tightly wound by fine-grained, herb-tinged tannins and should cellar through 2039.
