Saturated ruby. Cherry-cola, blackberry, vanilla and pungent spices on the nose, with a floral overtone building with air. Smooth, expansive dark berry preserve and cherry-cola flavors are brightened by tangy acidity and show impressive depth. Turns... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Dicht und tiefrot. Pulsierende, lebendige Aromen nach Pflaumen, Mocca und Lakritze. Feiner rauchiger Hintergrund und leicht parfümierte Nase. Im Gaumen präsentiert er sich vollaromatisch und äusserst lang anhaltend. Eine ausgezeichnete Balance zwischen Frucht, Holz, Säure und Tannine. Im Abgang nochmals hochlebend und bleibend mit Noten von schwarzen Beeren, Mocca und Zedernholz. Ein typischer Bin 389 mit grossartigem Lagerpotenzial von mehr als 12 Jahren.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
