Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

The fruit for the 2007 vintage of this Penfolds "icon and luxury range" wine (their words, not mine) is sourced from Padthaway, the Barossa Valley and Coonawarra.  The wine has an aroma of dried herbs, dark fruits and coconut, the latter from its ageing in American oak.  The palate has good length and tannins.  Despite the clumsy marketing, this is frankly an excellent wine.  91 points.
