    Wine Advocate Notes
    93 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Blended of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Shiraz and sporting a deep garnet-purple color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz Bin 389 South Australia has a bombastic nose of crushed blueberries and black currants with hints of vanilla pod, dried Provence herbs, lavender and cigar boxes. Medium to full-bodied, the palate simply sings with exuberant black and blue fruits, supported by grainy tannins and a refreshing backbone, finishing with a pleasant herbal lift." 233, 10/17
    James Suckling Notes
    96 Points, James Suckling: "Cabernet just has the upper hand in the blend at 53%; this continues as a rising star in the Penfolds family of reds, showing a very attractive fusion of Cabernet and Shiraz. Cassis, blackberry, red plums and red currant fruits, the palate isn't overplayed in terms of weight or extract, but it's very complete and nicely rendered. Best from 2020-2030+. " 10/17
    Wine Spectator Notes
    92 Points, MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator: "A lip-smacking mix of vibrant berry and cherry flavors that give way to green tea, toasted herb and cedar notes. Finds plenty of harmony on the finish, with the juicy acidity blending in with the dense, chewy tannins. Drink now through 2027." 3/18
    Decanter Notes
    95 Points, John Stimpfig, Decanter: "Dubbed 'baby Grange' because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange. A blend of 53% Cabernet and 47% Shiraz from various regions including the Barossa, Wrattonbully and Coonawarra, this spends twelve months in a mix of new and used American hoghseads. Again, this is deep and dark in colour with spearmint and primary cassis and plum jam on the nose and palate. The oak is well hidden here as cola, iron, blood, tarmac and leather flavours mingle with intent. There's plenty of Cabernet structure balancing out the richness of the Shiraz, with sweet and ever-present tannins. The acidity is à point, leading onto a good long finish."
    97 Points, James Halliday: "Matured for 12 months in American hogsheads (32% new). Unapologetically made with the don't fix if it isn't broken aphorism. It is tightly structured, with faultless attention to detail - wheels within wheels stuff, but inexorable in sending its black fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant) flavour message. Despite its full body, and its far-reaching longevity, it's tailor-made for the saltbush lamb shoulder of tonight's dinner. *Special Value Selection*
