Kilikanoon Killerman's Run Shiraz Clare Valley 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deep and dark and brooding at first with a core of black earth, spicy wood tones, vanilla, clove smoke, cigar, blackberry and rhubarb jam. Big and, slightly amorphous in the mouth with good acids and concealed tannins in a smooth soft package that offers brambly dark cherry and spicy mulberry jam fruit, big, intense, slightly simple, and with a shortish finish this reminds me a bit of Zinfandel 89pts

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.
