Penfolds Cabernet Shiraz Bin 389 2012
Bin 389 is often referred to as 'Poor Man's Grange' or 'Baby Grange', in part because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange. First made in 1960, by the legendary Max Schubert, this was the wine that helped to build Penfolds solid reputation with red wine drinkers. Combining the structure of Cabernet with the richness of Shiraz, Bin 389 also exemplifies Penfolds skill in judiciously balancing fruit and oak.
Editorial Reviews for Penfolds Cabernet Shiraz Bin 389
This is all about a deep roasted, spiced plum note on the nose with tremendous sweetness and depth. On the palate the wine is fresher with a solid, tannic presence supporting dark, liquory black currant and black berry fruits. the finish show a spicy oaky tone with a long, linger layer of vanilla wrapping the olive scented dark fruits. A baby with a promising future. 92pts
Easily one of my favorite wines to date. The flavor is robust and well-balanced and the bottle can usually be found in the mid-$20's at BevMo. Definitely worth the cost.
Very Good wine.Decanted at 64 deg rested for 15 min. Oak immediately noticed and the Shiraz tones it down just right.Robust lots of flavor.wish I had some cheese.

Flavors of stewed plum meshed with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and peppercorns, well defined tannins and oak.
A blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Shiraz the very deep purple-black colored 2011 Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz is a little youthfully mute showing cassis and black cherries on the nose alongside hints of pencil shavings licorice chocolate pepper and meat. More cedar flavor shows up in the firm and structured medium-bodied palate marked by a high level of grainy tannins a lively acid backbone and a long finish. It needs time in bottle.
