91 Points Robert Parker

Composed of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Shiraz, the Cabernet / Shiraz Bin 389 has a deep garnet-purple color and a nose of cherry and blackberry with a cassis undercurrent plus touches of pencil lead, cedar and Mediterranean herbs. The palate delivers a structured style with a firm, taut backbone, great freshness and a long, iron ore-laced finish.

96 Points James Halliday

"2013 is a really strong vintage for us across all areas," says Penfolds Senior red Winemaker, Steve Lienert. "A good year, a little more concentrated than 2012, and structurally a bit denser due to lower yields and drought conditions." He rates it up with 2010, long-lived, yet different in style. My impressions are slightly less flattering, though nonetheless a solid vintage, and 389 again rises above the pack. In sheer persistence alone, this goes down among the great vintages of Bin 389. It''s one for the cellar, a season of concentration, deep structure and vibrant colour that upholds brightness and promises decades of longevity. Blackcurrant and blackberry fruits meet black plums and liquorice, set against a backdrop of dark chocolate oak. A wall of tannins, fine and firm, securely structured yet polished, coax out a finish of outstanding persistence and impeccable line. Wow. A blend of 51% cabernet and 49% shiraz from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Wrattonbully and Coonawarra, matured for 12 months in 28% new American oak hogsheads. 15 October 2015 release. Drink 2033 - 2048.

95 Points James Halliday

A 51/49% blend from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Wrattonbully and Coonawarra that spent 12 months in American hogsheads (88% new and 1yo, 12% 2yo). The 'don't mess with me' message is immediate, the bouquet a shower of dark, savoury, earthy aromas, the palate trenchantly fullbodied - yet balanced and utterly persuasive. It needs 5 years to settle down and be friendly, but will handsomely repay patience. Drink to 2043.
