Wine of the Week: It's a Biggie

Kilikanoon Killerman’s Run Shiraz 2006 ($15), South Australia

The Kilikanoon Killerman's Run Shiraz 2006 is not afraid to show its outgoing personality. This intense red from South Australia has a deep, inky purple hue and concentrated aromas of bitter chocolate and blackberries. The interplay of dark fruit, leather, intense vanilla bean and black pepper will surely make you stand up and take notice of what you’re drinking. It’s not the kind of wine you sip at a party. This effort, by top Australian winemaker Kevin Mitchell, is like the kid who sits in the front row of class in school and knows the answers to all the teacher’s questions. If you’re into big Shirazes, the Kili will likely impress.

Quaffability Rating: 89
