88 Points Robert Parker
The 2005 Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz was aged in seasoned American oak hogsheads (500-liter barrels). Purple-colored, it exhibits aromas of cedar, spice box, earth notes, and blueberry. This is followed by a structured wine with slightly reticent spicy, blue fruit flavors, and moderate length. Give it 2-3 years and drink it from 2011 to 2019.
