90 Points Robert Parker
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Shiraz Bin 128 (from Coonawarra) has a good core of pronounced black fruits, loam and tar with chargrill notes plus a hint of black pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is led by structure with a solid backbone, taut fruit and great length, going earthy/peppery on the finish.

94 Points James Halliday
Deep crimson-purple; a complex fusion of blackberry fruit, cedary oak and hints of spice is a promising start, and the medium to full-bodied palate takes the bouquet onto another level. A long way in front of the sometimes skinny or bony Bin 128s of yesteryear. For the record, matured in 100% French oak. Drink to 2034.

94 Points Tyson Stelzer
Bin 128 is on form, the latest two vintages more refined and enticing than any in years. In 2014, these Coonawarra vines clearly
held out through a hot summer thanks to excellent winter and spring rainfall, capturing the authentic and engaging personality of
Coonawarra shiraz in dark berry fruits, pepper and spice. It’s elegant and refined, underscored by fine, chalk tannins and supported
by very well integrated French oak (12 months in 26% new hogsheads, same as usual). Drink 2019 - 2029.
