 Product Description

James Suckling Reivew
Rated 96
Cabernet just has the upper hand in the blend at 53%; this continues as a rising star in the Penfolds family of reds, showing a very attractive fusion of cabernet and shiraz. Cassis, blackberry, red plums and red currant fruits, the palate isn't overplayed in terms of weight or extract, but it's very complete and nicely rendered. Best from 2020-2030+.
Wine Advocate
Rated 93
Blended of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Shiraz and sporting a deep garnet-purple color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz Bin 389 South Australia has a bombastic nose of crushed blueberries and black currants with hints of vanilla pod, dried Provence herbs, lavender and cigar boxes. Medium to full-bodied, the palate simply sings with exuberant black and blue fruits, supported by grainy tannins and a refreshing backbone, finishing with a pleasant herbal lift.
Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 91
More approachable now when compared to some of Penfolds's other top wines, Bin 389 is an almost 50-50 blend of Cabernet and Shiraz. A fireside sipper built to woo big red lovers, the nose is a comforting mix of dark berries, chocolate cake and dusting polish, while the palate is rich but structured, with flavors of plush cherries and dark chocolate nibs. A dusting of spicy tannins marks the close.
Wine Tasting Notes
Higher notes reveal custard tart and brule, couting meating pan-scrapings and juices. Yet beneath, a darker edge - black pudding, sweetbread, asphalt. Morever, not just an "offal" offering - an aromatic veil of satsuma plum, fig and quince paste aromatics liberally sprinkled above. A tasted continuum of assorted flavors and textures. A spoil of fruits meshed with a grain-like paste. At once chewy and succulent, heightened by a mouth-watering acidity and overt 2015 elongated tannins. The oak is barely perceivable.
