Spicy aromatics of violets, plums and liquorice over a lavish, opulent palate of smoky, intense blackcurrant, chocolate, mint and spice. Lovely texture, a powerful, meaty complexity and touches of eucalyptus, black tea and raspberry cream.
The Poor Man's Baby Grange, so called because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange. First made in 1960, 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 balancing fruit and oak. "Never very far from perfection, Bin 389 will always be the choice for those expecting their red wine to be plump with fruit, approachable and reliable!" -Wine Mag.com.au
