tn: 1997 Penfolds Bin 389 cabernet shiraz

Nose: sweet dark chocolate, truffle, prune, clove, and dusty melted licorice

Taste: Subtle, cedary red fruit mixed with an almost medicinal taste. With air, it improved; now it's a classically Australian older red wine, with blackcurrants, smoke, and heather supported by fully resolved tannins. A joy.



Thanks to jcoldrey for the lovely decanter, by the way.
