Penfolds Block 42 Kalimna Cabernet Sauvignon 1996
Exceptional vintage conditions in the Barossa Valley in 1996 presented Penfolds winemakers with the opportunity to make this one-off, special bin wine in the tradition of the legendary Bin 60A, Bin 7 and Bin 90A.
Compelling savoury and spicy notes interwoven with carob and dark chocolate against a background of lightly charred, cedary oak. It's perfectly balanced and integrated with concentrated blackcurrants and plums merging into the chocolate and liquorice spectrum.
