Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2019
This is so rich, so powerful, so sensuous, a massive wine in the context of tonight's tasting. It's inky black purple with an immensely attractive deep rich creamy oak scent and in palate it has everything with juicy red fruits, spice, oak and tannins all in sync. Vanilla permeates through the backbone and violets, liquorice, allspice and mint join in. Already incredibly harmonious but knowing the heritage of this label - and the underlying acidity that is there but skilfully masked - it will still be irresistible in 21 years time. 51% Cabernet and 49% Shiraz.
