Kilikanoon produces some of the world's finest value-priced, full-flavored, dry reds. The 2005 The Lacky (which is made exclusively for the American importer) emphasizes the ripe, classic, South Australian Shiraz grape aged in old oak and bottled with no fining or filtration. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and elegant, it reveals plenty of berry fruit, pepper, chocolate, and new saddle leather characteristics. Drink this spicy, earthy effort over the next 2-3 years.
