Jacob's Creek Shiraz Reserve 2007
Editorial Reviews for Jacob's Creek Shiraz Reserve
Dry and woodsy on the nose with more wood than fruit. Sweet on entry with a loose, rather soft feel. There are nice sweet berry flavors accented with a touch of peppery spice but the tannins are drying and rob the mid-palate of its appeal. The finish is dry, woody and raw with light carob flavors. 78pts
My Rating 88: Nose is excellent and long with berries galore plus yes some wood! Ok with me. Wine would get a much higher rating if not for the taste. It's short taste very dry with to much acid on the palate. So I would rate the taste 82 and the nose 95.
Fantastic, spicey, medium tannins. Great with steak or grilled red meat of almost any kind.
Bleh. Easily the worst wine I've had in as long as I can remember. I have dumped out the bottle.
This is a good everyday wine for the price. Lots of fruit aromas. The taste is soft with moderate tannins, low acidity, mild spice, and a touch of fruit sweetness. The finish is medium-long with hints of pepper.
not sure if i have the wrong wine but i thought this one was way too dry. got it in china so i paid well over what it was worth. maybe i'll buy it again when i'm in the states. Until then...
a little dry but this is something that has come to be expected from a shiraz w/in this price range for me. not heavy on the wine tasting experience but i've become fond of the woodsy taste so i would have to refute Gregory's review. i like the woodsy taste. although i paid 3x as much in china for read more...this bottle i think this would be pretty good for a $12 bottle
Great spicy Shiraz. Medium finish and lower acidity. Very good for low price
External Reviews for Jacob's Creek Shiraz Reserve
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.
This Australian wine displays ripe plum and pepper flavors balanced by oak tannins, which will continue to develop with further cellaring. Pair this up with red meats, game and cheeses.
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 generous, a polished style with blackberry and cherry flavors at the center, persisting into a fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2006.
Offers juicy, attractive plum fruit at a good price, and finishes with red clay flavors. It'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 2007 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.
Firm and focused, noble in structure, with minty blackberry and blueberry flavors that persist on the fine, dry finish. Drink now through 2008.
