Kilikanoon Killerman’s Run Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Inky dark in color with a big black berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays vibrant fruit forward black cherry notes along with some light mocha. On the lighter side of medium in length the wine displays soft tannins and acidity. The black fruits linger in the mouth. There’s a sweetness to the wine that seems higher than it is. There’s no errant minty or herbal notes that I don’t care for, so at least there’s that 😉 We paired it with a strip loin, and it went ok, but not really a compliment to the meal. Now comes the question … would I run back and grab more? Nahh there’s better wines. It’s ok just not an amazing wine to my tastes. This is a very fruit forward, drink now style … I would give it an 87-88, from the LCBO web site, check stock:

Kilikanoon Killerman's Run Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 from LCBO

Regarded as an outstanding riesling vintage in the Valley, ’17 was also kind to cabernet sauvignon producing ripe flavours and varietal flair. One of those all-rounder, favourite kind of wines that get consumed early rather than later, it holds no pretence and is all pleasure. Drink by: 2026. Special Value. Score – 93.
