    ($450; a blend of 56% Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon and 44% Barossa shiraz) Violet color. Cherry, blackberry and sexy oak spices on the nose, with a suave smoky tone adding complexity. Very sweet and sappy, with fat but juicy flavors of cherry preserves, ripe plum and baking spices. This has great flavor extract and richness but it's not thick or viscous. A wine of great structure, depth and length finishing on a sweetly spicy note of new American oak. This clocks in at only 13.3% alcohol and proves that a wine does not need head-spinning alcohol or ultraripeness to accomplish flavor impact. The only previous bottling under this bin number was the 1962.

    Rich in flavor and supple in texture, a seamless stream of toasty blackberry, bay leaf, cherry and licorice flavors, wrapped in spicy oak. Has tremendous depth but keeps it elegant. Finishes long and lithe. 1,000 cases made.

    The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz Bin 60A Kalimna is a blend of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon (56%) and Barossa Shiraz (44%). Its blackberry, blueberry, tar, lead pencil shavings, licorice, and spice box-scented bouquet is followed by a wine boasting an unctuous texture buttressed by decent acidity as well as fabulous extract and richness. This stunning blend should have a minimum of three decades of aging potential and be a true collector's item for many years to come.
