2013 Bin 389 Cabernet/Shiraz, Penfolds, South Australia

Perfumed, the classic Cabernet character from the blend shows through including notes of eucalyptus and mint. The blackcurrant fruit is fresh rather than cassisy, but the palate does not want for ripeness or richness, with a very fine yet serious tannic structure. Great length.

TASTING NOTES

Composed of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Shiraz, the Cabernet / Shiraz Bin 389 has a deep garnet-purple color and a nose of cherry and blackberry with a cassis undercurrent plus touches of pencil lead, cedar and Mediterranean herbs. The palate delivers a structured style with a firm, taut backbone, great freshness and a long, iron ore-laced finish.
