Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Coonawarra Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep crimson red with purple hues. Fresh blackcurrant and dark berry fruit aromas are apparent on the nose exuding typical Coonawarra characteristics. Hints of black olive and licorice are balanced with nuances of cedar and vanilla from fine grain French oak. The palate exudes generous ripe cassis flavours with tobacco leaf, supported by subtle integration of oak leading to a rich, smooth finish.

An ideal accompaniment to osso bucco, beef rib roast or mature cheeses.

About Jacob's Creek:

With over 150 years of making wine in the Barossa Valley, Jacob's Creek's winemaking philosophy is to make high quality wines in a contemporary Australian style, which are fresh, elegant, great tasting and show true varietal character. From its beginnings in 1847, a young Bavarian immigrant named Johann Gramp planted the Barossa Valley's first commercial vineyard on the banks of Jacob's Creek. His first vineyard was in a small ironstone winery and visitors can still walk the historic vineyard, inspect the original cellar and feel a true sense of place for Jacob's Creek. Today, Jacob's Creek is one of the leading forces of Australian wine, creating wines with true character with a variety of different offerings from its portfolio.
