Firm in texture, generous with its cherry and currant fruit, shaded nicely with touches of fresh herb, smoke and bitter chocolate. Tannins are balanced through the finish. Drink now through 2008. 26,276 cases made.
The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz Bin 389's dense saturated purple color is accompanied by an excellent bouquet of blackberries, licorice, and earth. In the mouth, it is a plush, fat, luscious, full-bodied effort with considerable appeal. Loaded with fruit and glycerin, this pure wine should drink well for 7-8 years.
Full red-purple; dense, dark berry, dark chocolate, and savoury/spicy aromas are a backdrop for a palate full of cassis, blackberry and chocolate supported by a great depth of ripe tannins. Needs a decade to really start strutting its stuff, but will undoubtedly do so.
