I’m on a roll for big bruisers! This is another big wine. Once again I’m not impressed. This wine is better than the TALTARNI I last went on about which was more like sucking on a peice of oak. This wine has a real bitter tanic taste on the finish that overwhelms everything. Gone are the subtle Cab flavors and what is left is carefully crafty over massaged wine. If I were you I’d skip this wine. Not worth the money. If you do go for it try a min of 2-3 hours breathing and drink it with food. So not impressed …

TASTING NOTE: The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon “Killerman’s Run” was aged in seasoned French oak hogsheads for 15 months and was bottled without fining or filtration. Purple-colored, it offers enticing aromas of cedar, tar, black currant, and blackberry. Layered on the palate with spicy black fruit flavors and sweet tannins, it will offer solid drinking over the next decade. Score – 90. (Jay Miller,, Oct. 2007)’s thoughts on this wine:

Complex, structured and intensely flavoured, this punches well above the price. There are dusty, earthy, mixed spice and mixed field berry fruit aromas on the nose before bathing the palate with spiced zesty red cherry, boysenberry and ripe black Damson plum flavours. It’s medium bodied with a plush mouth feel and a persistent well-balanced finish that layers on an interesting hint of minty chocolate. Drink now to 2016 alongside smoked and bar b cued back ribs slathered in spicy red sauce. (VH)
