Jacob's Creek 2007
My Rating: 88 firm structure with well balanced fruit and med tannins. nose has berry like flavours. hs not the complexity of erlier releases like 2003
Scents of hay, smoke, a bit of tobacco. Medium body with licorice and tart plum flavor. Finish is dry, warm, and tangy.
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
A full bodied wine with a big finish, needs a hearty dish to subdue it's strength
I opened this bottle last night hoping for a nice suprise, but the suprise was on me. If you enjoy lots and I mean overwhelming Alchol this wine is for you. I have enjoyed other Jacob's Creek wines before, but not last night. I gave it plenty of time to open up and it did soften the blow some, but not nearly enough for me to purchase another bottle or take another sip.
Two and a half glasses
External Reviews for Jacob's Creek
Juicy, jammy and ripe. Bursting at the seems with blackberry, cassis and spicy red fruits. Mild pepperiness keeps your palate awake as smooth mocha rounds out on the lingering finish.
Smooth and generous, a polished style with blackberry and cherry flavors at the center, persisting into a fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2006.
This Australian wine displays ripe plum and pepper flavors balanced by oak tannins, which will continue to develop with further cellaring. Pair this up with red meats, game and cheeses.
This premium, full bodied wine is an outstanding example of South Australian Shiraz, displaying an intensity of ripe plum with pepper spice, balanced by soft grape and oak tannins, leading to a linger
Hedonistic levels of pure, ripe fruit. Plum, berry and cherry flavors are generous and extracted and are a defining trait to this youthful wine.
Firm and focused, noble in structure, with minty blackberry and blueberry flavors that persist on the fine, dry finish. Drink now through 2008.
