Penfolds Bin 389 2018

WINE FRONT 93+ POINTS! 

"Grapes sourced from Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Robe and Wrattonbully. 57% cabernet sauvignon, 43% shiraz. All American oak, 38% new.

It’s a showy Bin 389 or perhaps by that I mean that the oak shows quite a bit. It’s also warm through the finish. It’s substantially flavoured, a bit ferrous, a bit meaty, with coffee, toast and dark chocolate notes adding beef to blackberry, blackcurrant and gum leaf. It has the substance and the structure to age well, if not superbly. I tossed up between 93 and 94 here and, after revisiting many times, finally settled on the former, though it was a close-run thing." Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front
