Dark inky purple color with pepper, cola and red berries on the nose. Lots of oak when first opened. As it breathes the vanilla and pepper characteristics come out. Very nice, buts needs to breathe for a couple of hours.

This is a beautiful wine, showing both opulence and grace. Tobacco, earth, pepper, anise, wild berries, cherry and vanilla play on the nose during the first hour, followed shortly thereafter by whiffs of brown sugar and cream cheese, with hints of dirt and petroleum appearing intermittently in the background. On the luxurious palate, black berry, cherry, raspberry and plum, all dance on layers of chocolate and caramel. The rich and complex medley of flavors leads to a thick savory finish, with soy sauce, chocolate and licorice surrounding the fruit medley, all boosted by zingy pepper and spice to add high notes. At two hours, plum and soy sauce dominate the palate, though sporadic notes of raspberry and blueberry appear also. Red fruits and florals, including lavender and rose, linger pleasantly on the nose. Notes of vanilla and spice dance nicely on both nose and palate throughout the lovely experience. Old leather joins the nose at four hours, along with continuing threads of anise, pepper, tobacco, and plum. Palate shifts to tobacco, chocolate and black pepper, covered by a blanket of spice and tangy acidity. The fourth is its finest hour, with a long broad savory middle, drying tastily throughout the front palate, leaving a textured cottony mouthfeel, and spreading heavy zesty pepper across the top during the zingy finish.

Penfolds describes this as "quinessential" Shiraz, a "beautiful synergy between rich South Australian fruit and well integrated American oak." Easy to drink, subtle tannins, dark and red fruits, 14.5 % alc but doesn't taste hot. At less than $20, a nice value wine.

Complex, layered and absolutely delightful Shiraz. This wine is opening up beautifully with a nose of Black Currant and plum. This fruit combines with a touch of black pepper to sail across the palate into a satisfying, lingering finish. As good as it is today this wine shows signs of developing into something really special. This is a real price/quality bargain. Buy by the case, throw it into the cellar and drink for the next 8-10 years. 92.

Beautiful purple color. Depth. Balance of earth and fruit. Velvet on my tongue.

On the tart side, but the dark berry flavors are generous on the firm-textured frame. Drink now through 2014. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Vivid ruby color. Ripe cherry, plum and blueberry on the nose. Suave, sweet dark berry flavors are framed by velvety tannins and pick up bitter chocolate and coffee qualities with air. Oak-spiced dark berry notes cling on the finish, which is broad, sappy and very persistent. Give this wine some air or a few more years in the cellar.

This example features classic Coonawarra traits of iodine and minerals with a very restrained fruit profile. Some blackberry notes peek through on the nose and continue on the elegant, well-structured palate. Firm, slightly coarse tannins provide grip. Approachable now, but should improve over the next few years.


External Review

Crisp, open-textured and beguiling for its beautifully proportioned blackberry, currant, plum and spice flavors, hinting at black pepper as the finish sails on enticingly. Best from 2011 through 2018.


External Review

Deep ruby-red. Ripe dark berry aromas offer liqueur-line intensity and a smoky, oaky character. Fleshy and broad, offering bitter cherry and blackcurrant flavors and slow-building tannins. Sweet cherry and dark chocolate linger on the finish. More energetic and showy than the Bin 28 right now.


External Review

This is a medium-sized, drink-now Shiraz that's easy to like and hard to put down. Red and black plum fruit is dressed up with oak, toffee, and a hint of Grand Marnier. Finishes with smooth, chalky tannins.


External Review

Dusty tannins add an interesting layer of peppery spice and gritty texture to the mineral-accented plum and dried cherry flavors. Finishes on a compact scale. Best after 2009.

Winemaker's Notes:

PENFOLDS Bin 128 is one of the most distinctive reds in the PENFOLDS stable. Firstly as a 'Coonawarra Shiraz' it is one of the few PENFOLDS reds that isn't a multi regional blend. It is also matured solely in French oak. French oak generally lends a wine understated aromatic characters and is therefore a better choice with more subtly flavoured wines.
