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

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

Searching through Australian wines is a great way to find exciting, low-priced wines, and Jacob's Creek is a guaranteed producer of top-quality bargains. Their 2006 Shiraz is bright and lively, a beautiful deep crimson in color, with cherry and red berry notes practically exploding in the glass. On the finish, spice and dried herbs round out the bright fruit for an end I would expect only from a much more expensive wine.

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.

Tight and grainy, with a chalky edge to the berry and dried cherry flavors. Drink now through 2012.

Firm, even chewy, on the lean side, with dark berry and cherry flavors that linger. Drink now through 2007.

From some of the best vineyard sites in Australia's southern region, this medium-bodied red combines a spice, licorice and pepper nose with generous red fruits and a soft, elegant finish. Try with grilled meats and cheeses.
