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.

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.

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.

Colour: Mid crimson with purple hues. Bouquet: The nose shows vibrant plum and spicy dark berry fruit aromas, with hints of licorice, mint and well handled cedary oak. Palate: With ripe blackberry and plum fruit flavours, the palate is medium bodied in structure, with good mid palate fruit sweetness and soft, velvety Shiraz tannins through to the finish. - Winery

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

This Shiraz is a medium bodied wine with generous aromas of pepper, licorice and plum, leaving a soft textured finish on the palate. At our place this wine is enjoyed with great gusto alongside beef, lamb, chicken and amongst friends.
