Penfolds Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz 2009

Here is another of Penfold's new release wines.  This wine is sourced 100% from Coonawarra, from the 2009 vintage, which appears to be a good one.  Again, you can see that Penfolds are trying with this wine.  The wine has an aroma of bright fresh red fruits (almost jube like) and spices.  It reminded me of a young Cotes du Rhone.  On the palate, there are spices, oak and some length, but overall somewhat hollow.  83 points.

Abv: 14%
Price: about $20
Would I buy it having tasted it?  No
