Jacob's Creek Reserve Shiraz 2009 is full, in depth, and bright crimson in hue. Richly perfumed and aromatic, with intense dark berry fruits, hints of black pepper spice and sweet vanillin oak. A rich core of ripe black fruits, layered subtly with black pepper and restrained, stylish oak, supported by softly textured fruit tannins and concluding with a long, savory finish.
Excellent drinking now and will continue to improve over the next five to ten years. An ideal accompaniment to braised lamb shanks, eye-fillet of beef or hard cheeses.
