Penfolds Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz, 2005

Bin 128, sourced from vineyards in Coonawarra, is listed by Penfolds as its cool climate Shiraz. With up front fruit typical of Coonawarra, it features elegance rather than power.

Deep, dark, bluish. Beautiful smells of black currants, blackberries, flowers and menthol. Oak derived spices liven the palate. Medium to full bodied. Plenty of tannin but not enough to keep the berry fruit from showing. Drinking well now but should keep for several more years.
