    Winemaker's Notes:

    Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz has a dense core and purple rim. On the nose, red fruits, and only a skerrick of detectable oak. At first, wafts of a "deconstructed" sweet mince tart, dates and prunes. Later, higher notes of brulee/bread and butter pudding, cinnamon. Throughout there is a staggered scented release of musk, bay-leaf and tobacco. Quite the aromatic chromatogram! On the palate, raspberry and black fruits are abound. Chocolate, black licorice, and surprisingly nuances of (cold) oyster sauce as well. The tannins are sleek, belying the wine's textural plushness. There is well-integrated, seasoned oak - balanced.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Full purple-crimson; rich, textured and full-bodied, with plum, blackberry and vanilla threaded throughout the multilayered palate, with its hallmark soft tannins.

    Crisp and focused, this jazzy wine displays layers of cherry, raspberry, rose petal and dried tomato flavors, lingering on the refined finish. Shows presence and elegance. Drink now through 2019.

    Opaque ruby. Oak-spiced aromas of cherry and cassis, with smoke and licorice accents gaining strength with air. Offers intense dark fruit flavors and shows a gently chewy quality, picking up a dark chocolate nuance in the glass. Dusty tannins add grip to a long, smoky and appealingly sweet finish. This wine drinks nicely now but also has a solid track record for aging; I suspect that this will reach its peak in about ten more years and hold that level for some time.
