Winemaker's Notes

Deep crimson with dark red hues. Lifted aromas of mulberry and blackberry with underlying hints of cloves and anise, balanced by spicy oak notes. The 2006 Jacobs Creek Reserve Shiraz is a full bodied wine displaying rich fruit flavours of dark berries and plums and velvety tannins. Lovely acid balance and integration of flavors result in a supple and engaging wine with a lingering finish of spice, chocolate and mocha. A true expression of Australian Shiraz, to be enjoyed now or which with careful cellaring will develop gracefully over the next ten years.

Critical Acclaim

"Smooth, ripe and generous, a supple mouthful of plum, blackberry and guava flavors that flow easily into a long and focused finish. Needs time to soften the edges. Best from 2010 through 2016. "
89 Points

"Well-made medium-bodied shiraz, albeit with no distinctive regional fruit characters; has adequate tannins and structure. "
88 Points
