Powerful, aristocratic and impressive in the way it gathers up its flavors and lets them hang on and on. The range starts with black cherry, blackberry, exotic spice and mineral, and moves on to dark licorice, pepper and subtle gamy notes. Then it all comes together and picks up speed on the lingering finish. Best after 2007. 9,000 cases made. (HS)
First tasted on our meeting anniversary (& proposal date) 9/21/2003. Very awesome.
1997Penfolds Kalimna Bin 28Shiraz  201   
Bright crimson red. Stewed, fleshy, dark and berry fruits -- raspberry, plum and cherry. Elemental cocoa powder aroma at this stage, with dark chocolate, mocha and ground coffee about to unfold. Youthful. Expansive and mouthfilling. Concentrated, with chewy ripe tannins and lingering sweet fruit. Flavours of pan forte -- warm spices, chocolate, dried fig and dates. A benchmark Bin 28 with excellent medium to long-term cellaring prospects -- an impressive leap from the 1997. 2002-2016. John Duval
