Jacob's Creek Shiraz Reserve 2010
Editorial Reviews for Jacob's Creek Shiraz Reserve
Snowing some evolution on the nose this reveals hints of tobacco quite quickly followed by white floral notes, hints of cedar, some soil tones, a hint of rare beef and slightly stewy strawberry and black cherry fruits. Smooth in the mouth and quite polished with supple tannins and acidity that just barely peeks out through the delicate gauze of wild cherry and tobacco flavors. With a bit of air this gains additional freshness and reveals some more floral toned aromas in the mouth along with a lovely plummy/blackberry pie note that carries on the surprisingly long finish. the alcohol is just a hint noticeable on the finish but it doesn’t detract here. Rather refined and elegant. 87pts

Fresh and refreshing, with pretty plum and floral flavors on a spacious frame, lingering without weightiness. Drink now.
You can thank the weather for this seta, a clean, fresh, savory shiraz that shows the quality of the vintage in its fragrant fruit. This is not chippy and it's not pushed, just a simple, lovely red… for $13.
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.
Pretty impressive for the price, offering mint and cedar aromas followed by flavors of black cherry. There’s also a sturdy core of savory elements, like roasted meat and coffee. The wine is full bodied and velvety in texture, with a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now and over the next few years.
