KILIKANOON KILLERMAN’S RUN SHIRAZ/GRENACHE 2006

I enjoyed this one.  The shiraz is nicely balanced by the Grenache. There lots of flavors going on and the oak is well under control. The finish is medium but all in all quite good.  For the price it’s alright. No bargain but worth it …

KILIKANOON KILLERMAN’S RUN SHIRAZ/GRENACHE  2006
South Australia  

TASTING NOTE: The 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. Score – 90. (Jay Miller,www.erobertparker.com, Oct. 2007)
