2.16.2023 – Wine Enthusiast

In its article “12 Stellar Cabernet Sauvignon’s for Every Budget,” author Airelle Weg puts forth a winnowed selection of “the best Cabernets” in 5 wine categories, selecting Kilikanoon Killerman’s Run 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon hailing from Australia’s Clare Valley as the best Cabernet in the Under $25 category.

With a 92-point score, also labeled a Wine Enthusiast “Best Buy,” critic Christina Pickard writes about 2019 Killerman’s Run Cabernet:

“Clare Valley’s unique climate produces its own breed of Cabernet, and this is an excellent, affordable example of the style. Highly perfumed, with heady notes of savory herbs and spices (think mint, ground pepper and oregano), there’s luscious-yet-fresh blueberry and plum fruit, chocolate, violets and a little tomato stem. There’s power to the palate but a constant lift of cool climate acidity, wound tightly with spicy, talc-like tannins, with length and balance. Drink now with grill fare, until around 2027.”
