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.

This wine dazzles, with layer upon layer of fruit and earth notes followed up by a refined but intense palate where the flavors lean to iron, black pepper and Christmas cake. The finish is quite long, with delicious notes of raspberry and plum pudding buoyed by sinewy tannins. Keep several years for more complexity, then try with roasted venison.

The 2006 Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz is purple-colored with a nose of mineral, menthol, black pepper, and assorted black fruits. It exhibits some elegance, ripe fruit, and good balance leading to a silky, fruit-filled finish. Drink it from 2011 to 2018.

The 2006 Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz was made primarily from Barossa Valley fruit. It was aged for 12 months in seasoned American oak hogsheads. Aromas of soy, pepper, lavender, blueberry, and licorice lead to a medium to full-bodied, fleshy wine with layers of spicy black fruit, enough structure to evolve for 4ndash;6 years, and a lengthy finish. Drink this nicely priced wine from 2013 to 2021.

Der Wein zeigt einen intensiven, reifen Beerencharakter mit Andeutungen von Pfeffer und rauchiger Eiche.

Rich flavors of dark berry and cherry are balanced against a wiry backbone of fine tannins and acidity in this outstanding Shiraz, gaining momentum on the finish. Impressive for its intensity and elegance. Drink now through 2010.

Concentrated but not at all cumbersome, the Bin 128 Shiraz shows great poise and complexity while still providing the hedonistic pleasure that Aussie Shiraz has seemed to corner the market on. Plummy, spicy and rich, but backed up with finely etched tannins and good acidity, it's a great all-rounder.

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.
