    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz epitomizes the strength of Penfolds. Our entire focus is on optimizing the vintage by sourcing across a multitude of vineyards and regions. At Classification we drill further down, identifying suitable parcels for each style. At almost every stage of winemaking there is a selection process, trial blend or further refinement until we get it right. In 2008 we began with impressive parcels of fruit. This is reflected in the end result; the finished blend.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Penfolds Chief Winemaker Peter Gago is enthusiastic about his 2008 Shirazes, including this blend of 52% Cabernet and 48% Shiraz. Bin 389 continues to represent excellent value in a cellar-worthy red; it’s richly fruited, with oak in matching intensity yet not jammy or oaky, and the velvety finish lasts a good long time. Drink now–2025, and probably beyond.

    Deep ruby. Pungent cherry, violet, licorice and herbs on the nose. Dense and chewy, offering bitter cherry and dark chocolate flavors and a hint of candied flowers. Spicy and focused on the very persistent finish, with the cherry note echoing strongly. Nicely concentrated and balanced to age.

    International Wine Cellar

    Medium-weight and firm in texture, packing in its dark berry, tar, black olive and warm brick flavors on a juicy frame. The tannins have grip, so give this one a few years for the best results. Best from 2013 through 2018. 6,400 cases imported.
