Other Reviews….
Like most of its siblings, is complex and compelling, the bouquet setting the scene, and the palate filling it. Black fruits, gently vanillan oak, superfine but persistent tannins are but the start.

James Halliday – Australian Wine Companion

Grapes sourced from Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Wrattonbully. 54% cabernet sauvignon, 46% shiraz. All American oak, 29% new.
So here we are again. In the 175th year of Penfolds. A new edition of Bin 389 in the glass there. The pitch, it’s perfect. Scrunch gum leaves and super ripe blackcurrant, vanilla cream and red licorice all together and then snap them fresh, and strap them tight. There’s tobacco here, there are violets, there’s kirsch. It’s bold, it’s not without elegance, and it’s hard not to conclude that it’s pretty much bang on. Drink 2022-2035+
