Penfolds Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz 2007
Nose: Flashes of wet earth and black cracked-pepper. The nutmeg, along with the lemon zest, is probably oak-derived. The nuttiness almost definitely. Red-curranted fruits synergise with complex, meaty (cold-cuts/carpaccio) secondary notes.
Palate: An initial rush of juiciness and lush core fruits - rhubarb/plum/raspberry, underpinned by mouthwatering acidity and a small measure of stylish French oak. A firm finish, stylishly sealed with fine, talc-like tannins. Youthful, beckoning - confirming our earlier-release mantra for this Coonawarra Shiraz style.
Strong colour; has considerable richness and depth to bouquet and palate alike; plummy black fruits are supported by positive oak and emphatic tannins; long-lived style sure to improve.
