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

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.

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

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.

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.

Smooth and generous, a polished style with blackberry and cherry flavors at the center, persisting into a fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2006.

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.

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

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.

Hedonistic levels of pure, ripe fruit. Plum, berry and cherry flavors are generous and extracted and are a defining trait to this youthful wine.
