Kilikanoon Cabernet Sauvignon Killerman's Run 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Appearance: Inky red in colour with purple hues. Nose: Lifted notes of blackcurrants, tobacco leaf and spicy French oak characters blend effortlessly on the nose. Palate: A sweet, textured palate, combining blackcurrants, classic cigar box notes and licorice further enhanced by the fine grained tannins and supportive cedary oak.

Founded in 1997 by Kevin Mitchell, Kilikanoon is a boutique Clare Valley winery with an international reputation for producing regionally expressive, terroir-driven wines. The Kilikanoon property, featuring a circa 1860s stone cottage housing Kilikanoon tasting room, was originally settled by early English migrants who named it after an historic old mansion in Cornwall. On purchase of the historic property in 1997, mature vineyards of shiraz, cabernet, grenache and riesling that had been planted by Kevin’s father, Mort in the 1960’s, became a part of Kilikanoon, and now form the heart of the estate vineyards. 10 years on, with the addition of partners Nathan Waks, a principal cellist with the Sydney Symphony, and Bruce Baudinet, Managing Director of Oracle Estates, Kilikanoon is rated by US and Australian critics as one of the Clare Valley’s outstanding wineries, producing bracingly intense and long-lived rieslings, along with powerful, yet balanced shiraz, grenache and cabernet sauvignon.

Musty earthy aroma, oak driven with subtle hints of strawberry fruit, and something medicinal. Big mouth, with cherry and menthol notes on the finish.

On the nose, this wine exhibits the classic scent of a very nice cab with a clear presence of fruit, cherry and black currant, but with a hint of leather and spice. On the palate this wine is fairly dry, with a definite taste of spice more pronounced than the aroma would suggest and very smooth tannins for a long, satisfying finish. This wine would pair well with lamb, a variety of gilled meats or vegetables, or as I will experience shortly, a nice rare porterhouse, about 1 1/2" thick! Although Australia is quite well known for its Shiraz, I've found many of the Cabernet blends quite satisfying, and to me this wine marks a progression of Australian wine development. My only serious reservation on this wine is the use of a screw cap, but alas it's an indiscretion that can be forgiven. I would rate this wine a solid 3, with the potential for improvement over time.

With beef stew, big and alcoholic at first, mellowed out. Ed- not enough fruit, Rob - too barnish.
