    Jacob's Creek Reserve Shiraz 2004
    Sold Out $10.29
    2012 vintage available for $12.99
    This Shiraz like most Australian wines I have tasted requires a bit of time to open up. We had this bottle on a Tuesday evening with Braised beef and a fairly acidic tomato based sauce, rice and broccoli. On the nose it was tight and though it had the typical dark berry aromas not much aromatics. To the taste it was typical of Australian Shiraz fruit forward hints of blackberry and raspberry and a bit of spice. And it paired well with the meal. Nothing spectacular. On the other hand as the meal progressed the aromas became much more pronounced. We definitely got a Blackberry Icecream or Blackberry and cream lifesaver aroma that was very interesting. The flavors became much spicier and finished with a very full mouth feel. I think this wine could be very good with a couple more years in thh bottle.
