Reviews and Ratings

Of all the Jacob's Creek wines that I have tried, this is one of my favorites. Dark crimson color in the glass and flavours of blackberry, spicy oak and cloves in the glass.
Sandi rated this wine as 84/100

Over ripe soft tannins
Red fruit jam on nose
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

This premium, full bodied wine is an outstanding example os South Australian Shiraz, displaying an intensity of ripe plum with pepper spice, balanced by soft grape and oak tannins, leading to a lingering smooth finish. An ideal accompaniment to most red meats, game and cheeses. A wine that will develop further with cellaring.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Ce vin corsé de fort calibre illustre avec brio les qualités du shiraz d'Australie du Sud: un parfum intense de prunes mures rehaussé de poivre, équilibré par des tannins tendres de raisin et de chene et une finale longue et veloutée. En parfaite

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
