Jacob’s Creek Reserve Shiraz

What they say:

The wine displays intense blackberry and cherry with lively black pepper notes. It is full bodied with strong palate presence. It demonstrates soft silkiness and firm tannin backbone. Expressive smoky cedar oak characters compliments a wine with great length of flavor, with complex notes of blackberry and spice.The 2004 Jacob’s Creek Reserve Shiraz owes its complexity to the integration of moderate to warm climate ripe blackberry lusciousness with stylish cool climate black pepper and spice characters. The enticing nature of the generous yet approachable fruit flavors ensure that the wine can be enjoyed by those who choose to drink it now; however it has sufficient depth of flavor and density of structure to evolve further over the next 10 years if cellared carefully.

What I say:

I tend to like wines that are “jammy” – rich and almost (but not) syrupy.  I want a wine that I can feel on my tongue as I drink it.  I like that this Shiraz has spice but doesn’t knock you over with it.  It also pairs well with meals and tastes awesome with chocolate.
