"There’s so much granular tannin here it almost feels as though you can taste the sediment in it, as a young wine. Schubert would likely have approved. This is a determined style of wine. In terms of flavour, as is often the case with 389, cabernet is the main player. Blackcurrant, dust, chocolate, black olives, cloves and menthol. There’s a lot of typical Penfolds vanillin oak here, and indeed when you swallow, it provides the final impression. The mid palate, interestingly, also carries a hint of fresh leather – an attractive flavour that can make some drinkers nervous. I know I always rabbit on about tannin, but the spread here is remarkable. There’s a berry farm near where I live and they serve a concoction named Death by Berries. This wine reminded me of it. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and a syrupy mix of the three. This wine is very 389, very Penfolds, and if you tend to react against either, then you won’t like this. But this tastes like a pinnacle release 389 to me. And when the aroma has evolved and the finish tidied itself up, perhaps even a great one. 95+ Points/Drink 2022-2035+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
