Winemaker 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... View More

Critical Acclaim

JH 96
Australian Wine Companion

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.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

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.

International Wine Cellar

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.
