PENFOLDS BIN 389 2005


The Grade: AMAZING. The Mojo: The Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2005 is referred to as the “Poor Man’s Grange.” Derived from much of the same vineyard sources as its big brother, this amazing blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz (52% and 48% respectively) is a very impressive effort considering its price tag. Aromas of dark berry fruits, soy, malt, dates, bay leaf, rosemary, oak and sage slowly emerge from the glass as it aerates. The palate is awash with Darjeeling tea, olive tapenade, blackberry compote, cassis, camphor, tar, chocolate, espresso, cinnamon, mocha, coffee, and so much more. Layer after layer of complexity is revealed, with so much left to the imagination even after it’s finished. For coming in under $30, this is a helluva lot of wine for the price. And extremely ageworthy too.

K2, Life is all about the balance. You've got a couple of successful stores; what good is that success if you can't find time to appreciate it, and to take time off to enjoy life, spend more time with your wife than your job, and to make yourself a better person? Take a day or two off during the week and take your vacations. You're only hurting yourself. I did the same thing while I was building a business, but at some time, you've got to be able to walk away from it or what have you really built? My boss finally came to me, sat down at my computer, logged into Travelocity and asked me, "where can we send you?" It was the best thing he eveer did for me, and it was validation that it was okay for me to let some other people take care of things while I was gone. I've never looked back. You've obviously got the passion for a life well-lived, give yourself the chance. I know what you mean about the day-to-day grind. My wife and I have to go to one of our favorite country inns to give ourselves "permission" to just relax and to not have to do anything. We constantly work to bring that feeling home with us. Good luck.
