Deep crimson red with vibrant purple hues, the 2008 Bin 555 Shiraz shows a bouquet of lifted aromas of plum and blackberry supported by subtle spicy oak. On the palate, it is a rich, full-bodied wine showing intense berry fruit flavours; plums, dark
cherries with lifted spice characters. The wine is soft and generous on
the mid palate, with fine tannins and balanced with subtle oak nuances,
all of which contribute to a finish of good persistence.
BIN 555 will reward medium term cellaring and complement most
red meats, game and cheeses.
Good, but not great. First bottle was a C, but second bottle was a B-.
