Reply to "Penfolds 407 & 389"

Tried the 98 Bin 389 tonight on a whim.

Earthy colored red, bit of dustyness to it. It was a chewy glass, strong tannins, but the fruit was able to poke through. Drank over the course of about three hours and it opened up but never really resolved the tannins into the fruit.

Paid $25 and would not seek out another bottle of this, but makes me want to look for something that would be the full Shiraz/Cab experience.

Rated 88 by WS and 89 by Parker, seems about right to me.
