    December 25, 2018 - Noticeable bricking. Dried fruits almost tasting like a tawny port. Really enjoyable however I would definitely not hold any longer.

    March 31, 2018 - From a bottle that had been professionally stored at ~14 degrees almost since release.

    Translucent core, medium garnet, still appearing quite lively. Quite graceful on the nose, ripe plums and dried plums, cocoa, spice, and a touch of dried coconut that is blended in well. Rich, medium to full body, leather and prune notes mainly on entry and midpalate with a slightly crude coffee grind twist on the finish that I recall from younger Bin 28s in the past (eg 2004). Tannins mostly fully resolved.

    Will probably hold for another couple of years, but I don't think there is much more development to be gained.

    February 16, 2018 - Medium garnet, translucent, amber edges. Pronounced sweet black cherry nose, dusty, lead pencil, vanilla, hint of prunes. Medium-full body, round dark red and some black fruit flavors, losing a bit of fruit, so that tannin is a bit prominent. Medium aftertaste, nice flavors. I think slightly past its peak, would drink up.

    (Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz) A good chocolate, spice, blackberry and raspberry nose. Quite powerful on the palate, with great fruit backed up by good structure. The tannins are firm, supple, but perhaps just a bit too prominent. Perhaps needs just a few more months in bottle.
