Penfolds Kalimna Shiraz 2006

88 points

Barossa Valley, South Australia. 14.5%

Consumed in a New York restaurant where it was listed as Syrah 🙂 Lovely classic Penfolds style but more elegant, less dolled up with noticeable added acidity than in past vintages, and the oak handling seems more deft. Lacks the concentration of the more serious wines in the portfolio, but good restaurant drinking now and over the next 6 years.
