Streamlined and showing dusty tannins, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Napa Valley, with a winemaking signature that’s 100% Penfolds. Aged 16 months in 100% French oak, it shows a sleek mouthfeel in which lavender and peony converge with plum skin and jasmine. A few extra days of skin contact allow beefy, concentrated notes of cherry liqueur and dark chocolate to surface. Marked by spiced cedar, the finish is a satisfying immersion of power and elegance.

Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 704 was aged mainly in French oak, 40% new, for 16 months. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with vibrant Morello cherries, crushed black and red currants and boysenberries scents, followed by touches of cedar chest, menthol, dried roses and black olives. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has an approachable, grainy texture and a lively line lifting the black berry flavors on the bright, pure finish. Among the recently released quartet of USA/Californian wines under the Penfolds banner, this has the clearest sense of identity (other than Penfolds). It is a well-made Napa Cab with its own take on the typical style. 14,171 cases were made.
