2001 Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet-Shiraz

Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) Bright, deep-red, with an impenetrable core. A complex amalgam of fresh mulberry/blueberry/ blackberry fruits laced with soy and malt, and slices of fresh fig and dates. A later residual whiff of pan- juices, rosemary and sage. Ripe.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) Deep red with a good purple tint; the aroma is well integrated with nothing standing out: nicely balanced spice and berry, smoke and toasty-barrel touches, earth and dark-plum and traces of black pepper. The palate is intense and full-bodied, with a good degree of elegance but also plenty of trad Penfolds bite and grip. A superbly rich, balanced and rounded wine.
