Food Pairings for Penfolds Bin 389 Magnums
Bin 389 and other wines in the Penfolds Bin-range 'family' of red wines - 28, 128 and 707 - were the result of Max Schubert's constant experimentation during the 1950s and 1960s. Bin 389 combines the elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon with the richness of Shiraz and demonstrates the traditional Penfolds' trademark - balance between fruit and oak, in a wine with rich varietal characters and medium to long-term cellaring potential. This wine is deep red, and with a nose of ripe red and blackcurrant, chocolaty, licquorice aromas with a strong element of mocha, malt oak. It has a flowing, supple palate with plenty of ripe, developing black fruit, chocolaty flavours, fresh new oak and savoury tannins. It finishes firm and gritty but there is plenty of fruit that follows through.
