94 points "Medium to full red-purple; the bouquet leads with blackberry and cassis, with lesser notes of spice and cedar. The wine then shifts more into blackberry and bitter chocolate flavours on the long palate, sustained by lingering tannins. More elegant than the Bin 389, but will also be very long lived."

93 points "Tasted this 1998 Bin 407 at the Penfolds Rewards of Patience event in 2007. It looked good but perhaps not as stellar as it did on release. Fresh menthol and mint, clean, pure, medium-weight but somewhat majestic. Big frame of tannin, appropriate to the breadth of the palate. Mint, loam, polished blackcurrant. The mint here lifts the curranty flavour up out of the glass. I’d rather the mint wasn’t there, but it works well here. Rated : 93 Points Price : $NA Closure : Cork Drink : 2007 - 2019" Best 2007-2019
