For the price this is a good value. The color is a dark red cherry. The aromas are dominated by the Shiraz grape- pepper and spice with lots of ripe fruit. The palate is lush with fruit forward tastes- red berries, chocolate/mocha, and spice.

Smooth and refined, with peppery blackberry and cherry flavors on a velvety frame, echoing softly on the finish. Drink now through 2004.

Firm in texture, crisp and focused, offering a lively mouthful of peppery blueberry and cedar flavors that linger nicely on the deft finish. Drink now through 2015.

Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2008 Bin 2 Shiraz Mourvedre (12.5% Mourvedre) presents intense black cherry and chocolate scents with some spices plus whiffs of anise and violets. Full-bodied and packed with ripe fruit, it has crisp acidity and medium-firm fine-grained chewy tannins, finishing long. Drink it now to 2017.

Der Mischsatz variiert von Jahr zu Jahr, wobei immer die Anteile von Shiraz mit 65% - 75% deutlich gegenüber dem Cabernet Sauvignon überwiegen.

In der Nase bestechen Aromen reifer Pflaumen und dunkler Maraschino-Kirschen. Im Gaumen werden die reifen Kirscharomen von warmen Schokoladennoten ummantelt. Der Abgang ist weich und samtig.

With a broad swath of red fruit tightened around black pepper spice, this feels cool, saturated with flavor until it lightens a bit in the end. Firm overall, this is ready for lamb chops off the grill. Best Buy.

On the gamy side, nicely fleshed out, with vibrant cherry and raspberry fruit keeping it lively. Leather notes mark the finish. Good example of the value red blends coming from Down Under these days. Drink now through 2005.

Winemaker's Notes:

Penfolds Bin 28 is a showcase for warm-climate Australian Shiraz - ripe, robust and generously flavoured. First made in 1959, Bin 28 is named after the famous Barossa Valley Kalimna vineyard purchased by Penfolds in 1945 and from which the wine was originally sourced. Today, Bin 28 is a multi-region, multivineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented, providing a substantial proportion of the fruit for this vintage.
