Bin 389 was often referred to as 'Baby Grange,' in part because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange. First made in 1960 by the legendary Max Schubert, this was the wine that helped forge Penfolds' reputation with red wine drinkers by combining the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon with the richness of Shiraz. Bin 389 highlights the generous mid-palate Penfolds is known for by exemplifying the judicious balance of fruit and oak.
96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Looking in on the 389 can be what we can expect from the upcoming Grange. Now, they are very different wines, no question. However, stylistically they have much in common and the illumination into the season that birthed the wines in each instance. Here, the 2020 Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz has consummate polish and sleek tannins, imbued as they are with graphite, black tea, licorice and resin. The fruit is pure and black and chewy, a gorgeous wine. And it lives for decades. This has always been a collector's dream and continues so through this vintage. Highly recommended.
96 Points - James Suckling
Very rich, ripe and intense, this has plenty of depth and is one of the strongest statements of Penfolds' house style. Rich vanillin and sweetly spicy American oak on the nose, with chocolate, blueberry, violet, blackberry and iodine notes. The palate delivers quite an approachable and supple texture, smoothly fleshy and inviting. Flavours of blackberry, blackcurrant and mulberry abound. Deep and ripe finish with nutty tannins to close. A blend of McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Padthaway. Drink or hold.
94 Points - Wine Spectator
Dense and succulent, with velvety tannins and a core of spiced plum and blackberry. The details and aromatics take this wine to the next level, reminiscent of dark chocolate, Black Forest cake, nutmeg, and palo santo. It gains momentum on the long, expressive finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Drink now through 2037.
