External Reviews for Penfolds Cabernet-Shiraz Bin 389
14 months in new American oak. TA 6.6 g/l pH 3.62. Super smooth beautiful poise. Subtle oak integration. Light spiciness. Faultlessly drinkable so appealing. It s sort of the antithesis of natural wine really controlled and with a shiny sheen. That s not a criticism but I could understand if some people thought it too normal . 17/20 (RH) Jancis Robinson.
Supple, focused, expressive and refined, with ripe black cherry, dark plum, coffee and savory spice notes that cascade into the long, fascinating finish. Drink now through 2020.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz displays pure cassis and black cherry cordial aromas underlying notes of aniseed, violets, pepper and chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is voluptuous and wonderfully balanced between vibrant acid and a medium level of fine tannins. It finishes long and spicy and shows ageing potential. Drink it from 2014 to 2022+.
Inky purple. Powerful deeply scented aromas of black and blue fruits vanilla and espresso. Chewy and broad with weighty cassis and blueberry flavors that show a chewy quality and pick up a spicy nuance with air. Finishes sweet and very long with youthful tannins adding grip. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
