Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna 2005 Shiraz

Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna 2005 Shiraz, (Revisited) $19.95-$28.99, 91 points, is sourced from various appellations, but Peter Gago, the winemaker, has nicely tweaked this Shiraz into a prize.
A deep red wine, with cooking spice and floral hints wafting well into a bouquet. 
This wine is big and rich, but not over-powering, with good acidity and bright spices that makes for an excellent accompaniment to Lamb, Beef, or Buffalo for that matter, but this is also a stand alone wine, having flavors of mocha, blueberries, plum, and sweet cooking spices all diminishing nicely late palate into a peppery finish.  
Though I tasted this wine before, I thought a more thorough revisiting might be in order.

  1. Ha! Love the Roos. And your pictures are really excellent. Penfold's is solid too. Up and down their line you typically can't go wrong.

    1. Thanks John.

    After about 50 wines, I need to take a break and go eat some cheese, decompress for a few minutes and drink a lot of water, but then I'm right back at it. Takes practice, like anything.
