2012 Killibinbin 'The Shadow' Shiraz / Cabernet
Red Blend •Metala Vineyards
Australia: Langhorne Creek
The holiday season is in full swing, we must face our WORST NIGHTMARE… no-wine-o-phobia or running out of wine!!! Just in time, the Wine Spies come to the rescue with the ultimate horrifying red. Now you’ll have a wine to bring to your Halloween party that is worth of your homemade costume. A bloody dark deep red, dripping with fright, from our Aussie Brothers in Arms. Langhorne Creek is a peaceful and bountiful appellation for some of the best Shiraz and Cabernet in the world thanks to its sunny long days. Yet when the night sets, it’s where The Shadow emerges from the Killibinbin vines…
A deep, dark, eerie ruby cloak. Dominated by black cherries, spicy and bold. Elegant with plum and spice. Great length, seems infinitely long. Ready to accompany anything savory and sweet with pumpkin, meat, veggies, spices.
Trick or treat? Originally seen at $30, yet with a CHILLING 40% discount! Scary good deal, huh? Well, that’s exactly how it tastes too - frighteningly delicious! Skip the fake blood this year and grab some of The Shadow to pour around instead!
Here’s what the wine press has to say:
91 – James Halliday - “The Scream 2012 is scented of freshly crushed blackberries, blueberries and mulberries with hints of licorice, pepper and fertile loam. Medium to full-bodied, the palate packs in the youthful blackberry and pepper-laced flavors with the support of medium level, grainy tannins and lively acid. It finishes long. These give the value monitor an insistent tap.”
