Vintage Conditions: The growing season leading up to the 2009 harvest followed a similar pattern to previous years, with relatively low rainfall throughout winter and spring. Extremely hot conditions during late January and early February required careful management of our vineyards to ensure the vines received sufficient water and nutrients to maintain healthy leaf canopies. Fortunately the hot mid-summer weather was followed by much milder weather throughout the remainder of the vintage. This provided good ripening conditions for both Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, with the development of fresh attractive fruit flavours, strong colours and soft, ripe tannins. Winemaking: Individual vineyards were regularly monitored throughout the ripening period, with berry flavour ripeness and sugar/acid balance used as the criteria for determining optimum harvest dates. Parcels of fruit were destemmed and crushed into static and rotary fermentation vessels and fermented on skins for around seven to ten days, at temperatures between 18 and 26øC. Cap management techniques were optimised for each individual parcel, to maximise the extraction of desirable colour and flavour components while maintaining soft tannin structures typical of the Jacobs Creek style. On pressing off of skins, the free-run and thepressings components were blended together to give greater tannin structure and balance to the wine. The various components were matured separately before allocation into the final blend. The wine was lightly filtered directly before bottling.

Deep cassis aromas, a touch of licorice, and menthol notes on the nose open to a palate of black currant and cocoa flavors in this well-balanced, medium-weight wine. Nicely structured, it finishes with good length and moderate tannins; can be cellared for a few years.

Minty, herbal flavors weave through the pretty berry and currant fruit in this firm yet easy-to-drink red. At this price, why not buy a case? Drink now.

Soft and supple, with a minty edge to the currant and spice flavors, finishing with some refinement. Drink now through 2012.

Straightforward and lacking stuffing, this Cab has some berry fruit tucked under a veneer of oak. Aromas of soy sauce, plum and putty complete the picture.

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Medium intensity ruby, with a vibrant purple hue. Bouquet: The aroma displays attractive ripe blackcurrant with a leafy herbal lift, and underlying subtle spice and anise. Palate: The wine is medium to full-bodied, with flavours of blackcurrant, cassis and ripe berries. The wine finishes with slight mint, and a hint of pepper. The fine, ripe tannins create a wine that is well structured, approachable and balanced, expressing true varietal Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy with red meat dishes such as beef fillet.
