Penfolds Bin 170 Kalimna Block 3C 2010 is an extremely rare Premium Australian Shiraz, which commemorates 170 years of Penfolds, and was crafted with grapes from vines around 100 years old, in particular the Kalimna 3C clone, which is one block that is used in the great Grange itself.

“…the deep purple-black colored 2010 Bin 170 Shiraz Kalimna Vineyard Block 3C absolutely “wows” with intense creme de cassis and mocha aromas that are quite meaty and nutty plus accented by some earthy undertones, hints of baking spices, mint and touches of violets. Very concentrated and complex on the medium to full-bodied palate, the firm, fine-grained tannins and vibrant acid lend support to the very rich, long and layered finish.” Robert Parker

“Heady floral, spicy aromas of black raspberry, cherry-cola and mocha, with notes of licorice and vanilla adding depth. Sappy, palate-coating dark fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors show an alluring sweetness and seamless texture, gaining weight as well as energy and smokiness with air. Sweet and lively for its sheer mass, with a wallop of sweet oak and blue fruits dominating the wonderfully long, youthfully tannic finish. Not much of this to go around..." Josh Raynolds
