Penalise or Bid Game?

On this above hand I ended in 4 by South after West showed 5-5 in the minors. Partner, whose great loves in bridge are bidding slam and doubling for penalties, is still ruing the chance to have a go at 3D, but here we are.

West leads his spade, ruffs the return, and exits with a diamond.

Now obviously he only has one more heart, so I take my only chance. I lead the H4 from dummy and "finesse" the five. Kaboom!
