Kilikanoon Killerman's Run Shiraz Grenache 2006
Editorial Reviews for Kilikanoon Killerman's Run Shiraz Grenache
Black peppery, big black berry jam fruit with very nice tone of black tea and English breakfast tea and a bit of toast. Smells like breakfast! Lightly smoky and honied with an emerging touch of almond brittle. Bigger styled in the mouth though smooth and soft, a fruit bomb. Actually has goods structure just not immediately apparent, though the dark berry and plum fruit is a touch indistinct on the mid-palate and this looses focus turning once again a touch flabby and loose. Finishes with a touch of cocoa, vanilla and tea then a bit spicy with a cinnamon red-hot note. Solid if uninspired. 87pts
Very meaty nose of sheep and wet wool. Thick, oily wine. Lower in acidity it comes across as very mouth filling. I'd pair it with something big - steak in pepper sauce for example. The finish is very fruity - plums, prunes and figs. Some licorice notes after which die slowly.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90The 2006 Shiraz-Grenache "Killerman's Run" is composed of 60% Shiraz and 40% Grenache and was aged for 16 months in older French and American oak hogsheads before bottling without fining or filtration. Dark ruby-colored, it has an alluring perfume of cinnamon, cassis, kirsch, and blueberry. Velvety-textured, elegant, and intensely flavored, it has a long, pure finish. It will provide pleasure over the next 8-10 years.Wine Tasting NotesAromas of ripe plums, prunes and berries meld together in this blend of Shiraz (60%) and Grenache (40%). Sourced from the best possible fruit from a range of premium areas in South Australia. Made traditionally in small batches and matured for up to two years in older French and American oak casks.
