Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2019
Referred to as ‘Baby Grange’, in part because components of the wine are matured in the barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange. Darkened deep red colour. Note of rich and fleshy dark fruit completed by cola, liquorice and dark chocolate.

A dark horse vintage with the shape of Bin 389 and the torque of Bin 707. A fascinating but quite different Bin 389 revealing the light and shade of multi-regional sourcing and the hallmarks of the Penfolds House Style. Should last the distance. 96/100 Points.
Tyson Stelzer, Halliday Wine Companion
There is a resolute conviction to Bin 389, a confident assuredness that transcends its seasons like no other wine around it in the Penfolds portfolio, its consistency grounded in the almost even marriage of its two constituents. 2019 exemplifies this, a seamless harmony between the tension and fine-boned structure of cabernet and the body and depth of shiraz, yet embraced here in seamlessly interlocked harmony. A sea of glorious Penfolds tannins float a finish both expansive and far-reaching. Another grand 389 for the cellar! 96/100 Points.
