Item no. 94035
Color: Dense, dark red.
Nose: At once elevated, the nose is separated from the others in the Penfolds Bin family by the overt high notes of its barrel fermentation contribution. This is archetypal Bin 389 with notes of Maraschino marinated dark berries mixed with dark chocolate, bayleaf, black (Kalamata) olives and roasting pan juices. Oak and charcuterie elements effortlessly fill any aromatic gaps.
Palate: The 2005 Bin 389 is complete, full and multidimensional from start to finish, its weight coupled with (understated) power, depth and length.
Ripe fig, blueberry and dark plum fruit flavors synergise to create an inky/dense palate with no rough edges. The oak, and plush tannins are at one with the wine, elliciting no one dominant feature and a seamless palate. This is stylistically a classic and complex Bin 389 - a proud flag bearer of this traditional Australian style.
Food pairings: Ideal with hearty meat dishes
