Wine tasting note: 1996 Penfolds Bin 28 Shiraz

1996 Penfolds Bin 28 Shiraz

26th Feb 1999 Australia Table Red

[Tasted blind]
Opaque purple, paling gradually at rim. Very viscous.
Warm and alcoholic nose of plums, spice and ribena! Needs time.
Rich and round with good mouthfeel, black fruits, some peppery oak, furry tannins, decent length.
Dry finish with some bitterness coming through.
Needs 2-3 years, should last 10.
[Guess: Oz Cab/Merlot UKP 20]
