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.
Color: Dense and dark, and, at the time of tasting,
still possessing a purple core.
Nose: The nose hints at Grange character.
The supportive oak sits beautifully, seamlessly
integrated. Stewed plum flavors meshed with
notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and whole black
peppercorns. Nuances of
game terrine with pistachio shell.
Palate: The palate is tight and full-bodied, persistent,
long and forceful. The wine has impressive
texture, with pronounced, well-defined
powdery tannins and oak totally absorbed in a
wash of liquorice and berried fruits. The 2004
Bin 389 is a true "Baby Grange" release.
