Jacob's Creek 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

In 1847, a young Bavarian immigrant called Johann Gramp missed the wine he used to drink in his home land. Instead of changing his habits, he decided to start growing grapes and attempt to make the wine himself. It was a way of adapting to a new country, but still staying true to his character. What he didn’t know was that when he planted the Barossa Valley’s first commercial vineyard along the banks of Jacob’s Creek, he was also planting the seeds of one of the most popular wine brands in the world that would be named after the waterway.  Today,  Jacob's Creek remains one of the most well known, trusted and enjoyed Australian wines around the world. It delivers fresh, elegant and great tasting wines that show true varietal character.  The philosophy of Jacob's Creek is to offer a range of wines that suit all occasions.  As a company, we concentrate on two key things: The first is continuous improvement. Every vintage we strive to improve the quality of our wines by refining our winemaking practices and continually gaining a greater understanding of our vineyards. The second is that in everything we do, at every step of the winemaking process, from the vineyards all the way through to your glass, we all work with the final destination in mind. We do it for the most important wine critic. You. Read less

Scents of hay, smoke, a bit of tobacco. Medium body with licorice and tart plum flavor. Finish is dry, warm, and tangy.

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.

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.

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 lingering smooth finish. An ideal accompaniment to most red meats, game and cheeses. A wine that will develop further with cellaring.

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.

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

Firm and focused, noble in structure, with minty blackberry and blueberry flavors that persist on the fine, dry finish. Drink now through 2008.
