1996 Penfolds Block 42 Kalimna Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

Rob Geddes MW (2004 Vintage) says
Deeply saturated colour, very vibrant for a five-year-old. Strident oak dominates with layered red capsicum, cranberry, blueberry starting to absorb the oak. Lush sweet fruit middle concentrated blueberry and blackberry has a lot of purity and intensity rich evocative good sweet fruit progression but is still oaky. Finish lasts 60 seconds plus.
Australian Wine Vintages 2010
James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
Medium to full red-purple; a paradigm of everything Cabernet Sauvignon should be: the fragrant cassis/redcurrant fruit and perfect oak integration of the bouquet is followed by an intensely flavoured yet elegant wine on a very long palate flooded with cassis and redcurrant fruit, and crowned with fine tannins on the finish.
