Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2018
The warmth and generous fruit of this Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz make it fabulously food friendly. Some delicious pairing options that come to mind are a bone-in cowboy steak for two, generously salted and peppered, and then grilled to perfection. Have a little serving bowl of onion jam for those who might like it on the side. Or, pan-seared rib lamb chops with a fennel slaw is another wonderful choice. Your call, winelovers.
Wine Spectator: Top 100 Wine of 2020. "Shows terrific concentration, with dense and chewy tannins providing an appealing backdrop to the blueberry, dried cherry, date and candied ginger flavors. Tobacco, tomato leaf and espresso notes linger on the finish. Drink now through 2030' Nov 2020
Winery: "Color: Vibrant, dense plum red, red edges. Nose: A black Kalamata olive tapenade as a first impression, beneath an overlay of camphor and tobacco. How to say this politely? Boot polish, bitumen, cola, granite ... darkened style/varietal base notes. Yet blackberry conserve and sour cherry fill the (fruity) treble register."
