Jacob's Creek Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Limestone Coast 2016

Member Review by chriscage:

This pours a deep rusty red color, with a clear brown ring around the inside of the glass...suspended air bubbles sit right underneath the liquid top. It also seems to have an oily texture when swirled. The aromas are of deeply ripened berries, subdued alcoholic tang, spearmint leaf, and I dare say a slightly soapy oaked character....interesting to say the least. The flavors quickly put to rest the unorthodox smells this gave off, with dark berry, vanilla oak floral petals, and some dry mineral tones dominating the palate. The mouthfeel is smooth, yet tannic on the finish.....highly drinkable and overall this brings a deeper depth to this variety than a lot of other Cabs I've enjoyed. Recommended!

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
