Penfolds Cabernet Shiraz Bin 389 2012

Penfolds Cabernet Shiraz Bin 389 750ML 2012        
Sku: 20463

Created by the legendary Max Schubert - creator of Penfolds Grange - 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, 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. A classic Australian style with a clear Penfolds identity.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 91 points (Oct 2014)
A blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Shiraz made with fruit from Wrattonbully, Barossa, McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek and Robe that was aged 12 months in American oak hogsheads, 40% of which were new, the deep garnet-purple colored 2012 Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz is slightly closed with the Cabernet / cassis leading the nose marked by warm red and black plums, Mediterranean herbs, pepper and cedar. In the mouth notes of vanilla and cedar wrap around the warm black fruit core that is framed by firm, chewy tannins and just enough acid. It finishes long.
 Wine Spectator 91 points (Oct 1 2014)
Velvety, vibrant and vivid, offering plum and currant at the core, with subtle spice overtones set on a dynamic frame. Expressive and deftly balanced, this has intensity without extra weight. Drink now through 2025.H.S.
