2006 Penfolds Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz
A generous Bin 128. Matured for 12 months in 25% new French oak hogsheads, with the balance in one and two year old French oak hogsheads. Opaque black crimson colour with black purple hue. Top note of spice, followed by plum, blackberry and vanilla. The palate is fuller in body than most vintages of this wine tend to be, (the 2004 possibly being the exception in recent years). Flavours of ripe plum, stewed fruit and liquorice. Fine grained tannins. Aftertaste of vanilla, stewed fruit and just a hint of liquorice allsorts emerging.
Cellar 3-4 years (2011-2012)
