Jacob's Creek Reserve Shiraz 2014

Member Review by chriscage:

Deep crimson color with purple hues around the rim and cranberry clarity against a clear sky. Aromas that start with licorice and heavy oak, plum, and with various summer berries, vanilla spice, and classic chocolate, sweet tobacco and freshly tanned leather. Flavors of blackberry, plum, subtle baking and cooking spices, cherry/licorice nuances, charred vanilla sweetness and a tinge of alcohol heat at the finish. The mouthfeel is dense at first, but as it takes on oxygen, it really smooths out and the palate becomes dry with a lingering chokecherry hint.

In 1847, a young Bavarian immigrant called Johann Gramp missed the wine he used to drink in his home land.

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

Tasting Notes:

The nose shows lifted mulberry, chocolate and clove aromas, enhanced by cedar and vanilla notes from the influence of oak. A medium to full-bodied palate showcases the classic varietal plum and forest berry flavours complemented by light vanilla and regional chocolate notes. The supple ripe tannins are typical of the best Barossa Shiraz, culminating in a long, satisfying finish.

Closure: Stelvin
