PENFOLDS BIN 28 KALIMNA SHIRAZ 2014
Purple with a darkened core
An initial impact of high-toned dark notes – a Shiraz tarriness, black-bean sauce. Following, a tussle between the spice jar’s anise and ginger… and the blender’s coffee-grind and mocha. Minutes later, without as much as the provocation of a swirl of the glass, the aromatic ascent of pan scrapings, a rich jus and smokey meats. PALATE
Bright. Volume, generous in every sense. A purple fruit spectrum unfolds – a fresh assortment of plums and dark berries – many varieties of both. What may appear to be a soft, smooth Haighs Chocolate-like mouth-coating to some… is a roasted eggplant texture/creaminess to others! Tannins – soft and even, texture - almost velvety/suede. Yet, still tarry!
