94 Points James Halliday
Powerful but silky smooth; elegance and fruit freshness beyond the normal, black fruits running through the length of the palate; ripe tannins, restrained oak. Another testament to 2002. Cork. Drink to 2022.

A good value from Penfolds is the 2002 Bin 389, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz aged in large American hogsheads prior to bottling. It offers peppery, earthy, black cherry, and cassis fruit, notions of herbs and spice box, and a medium-bodied, soft finish. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.
