Reasonably deep ruby red colour. No real legs to speak of but a decent halo around the edge of the glass. Berries, plums and a background of chocolate. A relatively easy going wine and certainly very approachable from the outset. Starts light, builds on the palate with enough tannins to hold it together well, however not a big wine. Surpringly good finish. I quite liked it, a great compromise wine for some one who likes bigger wines but is drinking with a friend or partner that wants something lighter. Lovers of big wines probably wouldn't choose it alone but won't regret sharing one.
Kilikanoon - Shiraz The Lackey
Relatively deep crimson color with little in the way of a distinguishable halo given its youth. The alcohol content is readily apparent in ample legs that run down the glass at a modest pace. Decent nose of berries on it giving it a pleasant aroma to welcome you in, particularly given the price. No not so much so that it would entice genuine excitement before the first taste, but enticing enough nonetheless. A lot of alcohol to sift through when making up your mind here but would characterize this as a medium bodied wine with tight enough tannins to make it stand up and count and keep you reaching for your glass. Close out with a robust finish. Overall an outstanding wine in the context of the outlay and very good regardless of what one were to pay.
