The thing that is so impressive about this everyday wine is that is so consistently produced, vintage after vintage. And when I say consistently, I mean consistently well. We have been drinking this wine for the past couple of years, and have had every vintage from 1997 through 2002, and have yet to be disappointed. We have no compunction about spending less than $10 US on a bottle of wine and sending it down the drain if it is not worth the time. Lindeman's Bin 50 is always priced between $7 US and $8 US and has never once experienced this "dismissal".
Typically earthy Shiraz, deep purple in color, with a dark, fruit nose and lingering spice on the tongue. Very approachable, with the 2002 drinkable now and probably even better in one to three years. Great with red meats! Can't beat it for the price.
