The color of this wine is medium ruby and is crystal clear. The nose is full of blackberry and plum, along with LOTS of barrel. The nose is a full nose and almost requires chewing! The initial flavor is full of body (go figure) and has the blackberry and plum overtones, as well as the barrel (no need for a toothpick). Absolutely no mouth coat. The follow-through is the same as the initial and has no throat feel and goes down easy, we did decant this for a grand total of three minutes, more so to separate out the grape sediment (which the wine was full). This wine pairs well with marinara based pastas or heavy steaks with lighter side dishes.
Not my favorite Shiraz, which i usually enjoy. Found this one sucked all the life out of my mouth. And the food. Left me reaching for my water glass...
Much fruitier than your usual shiraz. Is it due to Kalimna? fz
Three and a half glasses

A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2005 Penfolds Shiraz Kalimna Bin 28 1500ml
Excellent hue and depth; abundant flavour, depth and structure; luscious blackberry, licorice fruit; firm, balanced tannins. James Halliday. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2005 Penfolds Shiraz Kalimna Bin 28 1500ml
Wine Tasting NotesA deepened crimson with a purple core. The nose is complex and beguiling, with notes of demi-glace and roasting pan juices, beneath scents of pipe tobacco, vanilla and pencil shavings oak - much more than just a simple varietal offering. The palate is full-bodied, refined and taut showing dark, black conserve fruit flavors with Satsuma plum notes to the fore. Further liqueur chocolate and spice flavors are impregnated by overt, chewy and ripe tannins. To sum up, the integrated fruit, oak and acid loudly proclaim harmony and balance. The vintage conditions were first class and rank alongside and recent exemplary vintage. This, the vintage, is a real Bin 28, showing polish, poise and pedigree. By all means, drink whenever, but please save some for the cellar, and the 2010s!
