Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz Rmp 90 2008
A menacing and impenetrable black core. Classic Bin 28 fruits and maturation complexities. Satsuma conserve and a (very) faint cigar box background (oak or fruit ?). Aromas of a basking Sunday Roast and / or simmering Beef Bourgogne, shadowed by tumeric and dark Calamatta olive. Full-bodied. Assertive, but neither bullying with alcohol nor oak. Dense, great texture & layered - all bases covered. Blueberry Barossa fruits exposed - a la RWT! Christmas Cake mix or trifle? Perhaps the suggestion of brandy / custard favours the latter? The density, texture and depth of this wine is testament to the strength of the vintage.
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.
would have scored it higher but too much alcohol. 3.25
Bold fruit aromas - particularly cherry. Alcohol on the nose as well. Tastes of raspberries and prune with a long, smooth finish. Enjoyable and affordable.
Very smooth and drinkable, fruity and refreshing.
solid fruit with mild spices. very drinkable. should age well - maybe best in 2011. bargain at the price <$10.
External Reviews for Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz Rmp 90
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.
Smooth and refined, with peppery blackberry and cherry flavors on a velvety frame, echoing softly on the finish. Drink now through 2004.
Dense with juicy blackberry flavors, this has scents of black pepper and tar. The finish is clean and well knit. Serve it with lamb stew.
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.
Full and round with good berry fruit supported by soft spice and hints of licorice and violets. Good mouthfeel and body to the mid-palate and a long, lustrous finish. A nice match with beef, lamb, or veal.
Der Mischsatz variiert von Jahr zu Jahr, wobei immer die Anteile von Shiraz mit 65% - 75% deutlich gegenüber dem Cabernet Sauvignon überwiegen.
