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.
External Reviews for Jacob's Creek
Round and supple, this shows relatively moderate ripeness, which means black fig and green peppercorn flavors that keep it fresh. A good, firm red for anything off the grill.
Smooth and open-textured, with cherry and savory red pepper flavors that mingle effectively on the mineral-tinged profile, lingering against refined tannins on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2014.
Smooth, ripe and generous, a supple mouthful of plum, blackberry and guava flavors that flow easily into a long and focused finish. Needs time to soften the edges. Best from 2010 through 2016. 90,000 cases imported. -HS
Offers juicy, attractive plum fruit at a good price, and finishes with red clay flavors. Itrsquo;s forward and accessible, not complicated but still very good.
A perpetual Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast Magazine said "The Reserve wines from Jacob’s Creek continue to offer excellent value". This wine from the outstanding 2006 vintage is an engagingly fragrant wine, aged up to 20 months in French and American oak barrels. After aging, only the best lots make it into the final blend. The tannins are soft and supple and the flavors are a complex intermingling of blackberry, plum, cedar, coffee and spice.
Wine Tasting Notes Deep crimson with dark red hues. Lifted aromas of mulberry and blackberry with underlying hints of cloves and anise, balanced by spicy oak notes. The Jacobs Creek Reserve Shiraz is a full bodied wine displaying rich fruit flavors of dark berries and plums and velvety tannins. Lovely acid balance and integration of flavors result in a supple and engaging wine with a lingering finish of spice, chocolate and mocha. A true expression of Australian Shiraz, to be enjoyed now or which with careful cellaring will develop gracefully over the next ten years.
