Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 1996 75cl / 14%
A bottle of 1996 Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz from Australia. Bin 389 is largely Cabernet Sauvignon with Shiraz from South Australian vineyards making up the balance. Known by some Australian collectors as 'Baby Grange' due to the fact that it is matured in barrels which have held the previous vintage of Penfolds' flagship wine.
Wine Spectator critic Harvey Steiman described the 1996 Bin 389 as 'a revelation' when tasting it in 2009, 'absolutely gorgeous—tight and focused, mingling currant, cherry and dried tomato character in a seamless frame. It was very Cabernet-like, with just the right touch of flesh from the Shiraz. 93 points'
