quote:There is no way that the 92 Bin 389 could be described as a fruit bomb - and its a normally a Cabernet Shiraz blend.
Never said it was a fruit bomb, only stated that it was an AU shiraz blend capable of long term development in the cellar. Penfolds Kalimna and Coonawara Shiraz are $20-25 bottles that will develop for a decade or more (in a good vintage) and produced in a fruit forward style.
Its hard to say what a "fruit bomb" exactly is. Compared to The Magil Estate, I would say that the Bin 389 is a much more fruit driven style, but no where near as fruit forward as the Bin 2.
