Penfold Bin 389 2010 Cabernet Shiraz 750ml

Bin 389 is often referred to as the 'Poor Man's Grange' or 'Baby Grange',in part due to the components of the wine being matured in the same barrels that held previous vintages 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. “This is the Bin 389 we’ve been waiting for! How good? Well, that’s for others to say. What we will say, however, is that it is benchmark 389 – certainly the finest of this new millennia, and one that will jostle with the reputations of the Bin 389 big names (sorry, vintages) of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s!” “Now in its sixth decade, ‘Baby Grange’ asserts its own identity and commands its own following.

Tasting Notes
Colour Vibrant blood-red with a staining dark core.
Nose Complete. Initially difficult to separate aromatic components. Must be Bin 389! With aeration, an evocative barrel-ferment character separates above, prune/fig/dates/quince beneath, bridged by soy/hoisin sauce notes. A pronounced freshness is immediately apparent. Scents of char-grilled, Italian vegetables (zucchini, eggplant) fleetingly distract. Stylish, and regardless of whether either ee or oo are used, both breeding and brooding are apt descriptors!
Taste Full-bodied. It continues to evolve, enchant, embrace and excite! Serve blind and surprise.
Food matches Dry-aged grass-fed Longhorn beef rib eye, charred swede, wilted warrigal greens, caramelised oat emulsion.
