Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2012
|Region||Australia, South Australia|
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, 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.
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. 10,230 cases imported.
