Penfolds Bin 389 Premier 2005
Beautiful dark red color with a bit of aged yellowing at the glass. Cherry with hints of pepper in the nose. Huge ripe round red fruit with a syrupy oaky finish. For the price, or really any price, it's amazing stuff. Crowd pleaser!

Still a baby which (according to the critics) will challenge the great 1998 - and that's saying something - 95/100
First off, I am terrible at describing wines. I just know what I like. I had the Penfolds Bin 389 2004 about a year ago, and loved it. I saw this at the store, and thinking it was the same thing, grabbed a few bottles. It wasn't until I got home that I realized it was a different vintage. It's definitely not as good as the 2004, but still delicious.
Another great Aussie! Has plenty of depth and dimension. Will cellar for at least ten years and mature to a wonderful 389. For a taste now, I recommend decanting, but careful cellaring will reward with a fanatsic wine. I recommed checking www.penfolds.com.au for tasting notes from the wine makers, along with cellaring potential for all their wines.
A Classic Penfolds. My first experience was in a private tour of the Magill Estates on the outskirts of Adelaide winery tour. I have picked this up ever since as my favorite all around wine - it is consistently one of the best classic Shiraz/Cab Sav Blends with wonderfully smooth finish on the pallete. At $25-30US it is well worth the price.
External Reviews for Penfolds Bin 389 Premier
Aromen nach Pflaumen, Mocca und Eiche. Feiner rauchiger Hintergrund und leicht parfümierte Nase. Im Abgang nochmals hochlebend und bleibend mit Noten von schwarzen Beeren, Mocca und Zedernholz.
Im Gaumen weist der Wein eine grossartige Balance auf zwischen einer wunderbaren Fruchtigkeit und feinen Eichentönen. Ein würziger Wein mit integrierten Tanninen und einem langen und fruchtigen Abgang.
