Penfold's BIN 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2004

South Australia, 14.5%, screw cap, $30, 91-92 pts, Drink 2009/(2008-2012+).

Aromas of blackberries,dark cherry, plums and vanilla oak.

Quite similar on the palate, showing up thick with blackberries and dark chocolate, a touch of liquorice spice and finishing with a fair grip of tannin and a whiff of vanilla oak. Quite "blocky" at the moment and patience will reward the palate on this Kalimna.

Note: Didn't give this one the appropriate time to breathe when reviewing, may post a later review.
