    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Shiraz.

    Bright, deep-red, with an impenetrable core. A complex amalgam of fresh mulberry/blueberry/ blackberry fruits laced with soy & malt, and slices of fresh fig & dates. A later residual whiff of panjuices, rosemary & sage. Ripe, yet not overripe. Oak? Yes, and very stylish!Textbook structure: tannin, acidity, balance.

    Upfront, Cabernet & Shiraz fruits intertwine for collective attention, a sweet middle meshed with tea-leaf/olive tapenade flavours. Rounded, ripe and lush tannins and integrated spicy oak usher a finish bereft of any rough edges. Focused, polished, brooding, inky. No doubt its best lies ahead.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Great colour, and as befits the vintage, is an intense and complex wine of great breed; it has many layers of blackberry, blackcurrant, licorice, earth and chocolate, the powerful tannins in balance, the oak likewise.

    The 2006 Bin 389 Cabernet (52%)-Shiraz (48%) was primarily sourced from Barossa Valley and Langhorne Creek. The wine was aged for 12 months in 22% new American oak hogsheads. Opaque purple-colored, it delivers aromas of mulberry, blackberry, cedar, and Asian spices. On the palate, spicy, ripe black fruits and a hint of tapenade make an appearance. Nicely balanced with several years of aging potential, it can be enjoyed from 2011 to 2021.

    Deep violet with a bright rim. Cherry-vanilla, blackberry and cola on the nose, with complicating notes of mint, vanilla and dried flowers. Sweet dark berry flavors pick up a tangy edge with air, along with vanilla and candied floral qualities. Finishes on a sweet dark berry note, with dusty tannins adding grip and refreshing bitterness.
