Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2015

Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2015

53% Cabernet Sauvignon 47%Shiraz 

This has a classic 389 nose of black fig, blackcurrant, mint, anise, buttered toast and black pepper. There’s excellent balance between the Cabernet and Shiraz, neither overwhelms the other. The silky structure comes courtesy of the Cabernet, while there is plenty of flesh on the bones from the Shiraz.  There is a long black-fruited finish. This year lives up to the “baby Grange” moniker and it is no surprise that this is collected for future enjoyment year in, year out.
