Food Pairings for Jacob's Creek Shiraz Reserve
Editorial Reviews for Jacob's Creek Shiraz Reserve
Smoky and subtle, with undercurrents of violet and vanilla supporting slightly minty black cherry and berry fruit. This is bright in the mouth and rather well balanced. A fresh, somewhat fruity character is layered over a bed of persistent cocoa, which is obvious but nicely restrained. Very much in a crowd-pleasing style, but exhibiting a restrained side as well. The fruit shows more wild cherry berry character on the finish, along with some toasty spice notes and a nice vanilla and coconut oak accent. 87 pts
Cedary, toasty and tarry on the nose with a deep base of worn leather, nuances of vanilla and white pepper and jammy cooked berry fruit. Nice and bright on entry with soft tannins and nicely supportive acidity that adds lift to the red plum and wild berry fruit here, but the oak is definitely the dominant flavor in the mouth. Toasty and heavy on the vanilla and spice. A little fruit pops on the finish, which is slightly sticky if smooth. Easy to drink, smooth and simple. 83pts
External Reviews for Jacob's Creek Shiraz Reserve
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 2008 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.

Bright and refreshing, exhibiting a savory edge to the berry flavors. Drink now.
Ripe blackberry fruit and spicy black pepper notes, with subtle background chocolate-mocha-oak nuances. The palate has sweet brambly fruit encased in smooth and supportive soft tannins. The wine is a medium-bodied style showing persistence of fruit, and harmonized with the supple finish that defines the Jacob's Creek style.
On the lighter side, but nicely fleshed out with strawberry and spice flavors, which echo on the grainy finish. Drink now through 2003.
Sturdy and appealing for its bright plum and black cherry character, hinting at mineral notes on the finish. Drink now.
A fruit-driven wine. Loads of black cherry, violet, even maple notes on the nose. Rich, yet lively and multifaceted, with bright sweet fruit, herbal notes and good acidity to match. Not deep, but an easy drinker the satisfies.
Colour: Deep crimson red. Bouquet: This complex shiraz offers a powerful bouquet of chocolate, liquorice & plum. Palate: The palate provides rich dark berry fruit with elegant herb & spice. A full dense texture with ripe tannins, well integrated oak and a complex savoury finish complete this perfectly structured & beautifully balanced wine.
