A change from burgundy.
6 April 2016
Sometimes you need a change.
It cant be all about burgundy all the time can it?
2001 Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz
Black berries and cherries. Olives, tar and tobacco on the nose.
Balanced with well integrated tannins on the finish.
The 389 never seems to live up to its reputation.
From an exceptional vintage it is a good wine but hardly living up to the hype.
Shell was right, we should have opened a Burgundy.
