Winemaker Notes

The 2012 Jacob's Creek Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon displays deep crimson red color with purple hues. The wine shows fresh, varietal leafy blackcurrant and plum fruit aromas on the nose, with spicy cinnamon and cedary notes from well-handed French oak. The palate is elegantly structured, with vibrant, intense flavors of cassis, plum and tobacco leaf. these flavors are supported by classy integrated oak with fine supple tannins and balanced acidity, leading to a long, harmonious finish.

Critical Acclaim

JH 92
Australian Wine Companion

Bright crimson-purple; the expressive bouquet of blackcurrant fruit and a touch of Coonawarra mint (in the absence of gum trees said to create that mint) leads into a medium- to full-bodied palate; here the fruit is joined by appropriately persistent cabernet tannins, and enough oak to complete the picture.

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.

Carmenere

View all wine

Dark, full-bodied, and herbaceous with a spicy kick, Carménère has found great success in Chile, far from its birthplace of Bordeaux. Although Carménère once accompanied Malbec and Petit Verdot as a minor blending grape in Bordeaux, it is now virtually extinct there, though it has been thriving since the mid-nineteenth century in Chile. Originally mistaken for Merlot, it is now successful of its own accord and plantings continue to increase. It is bottled both on its own and as part of Bordeaux-inspired blends.

In the Glass

If not fully ripe, Carménère is often marked by a green, herbaceous character (think green bell pepper and green peppercorn), and expresses flavors of red berry and black pepper when just ripe. With additional hangtime at the end of harvest, it is reminiscent more of blackberry, blueberry, and dark plum, with rich and savory notes of chocolate, coffee, smoke, and soy sauce.

Perfect Pairings

Carménère can easily overpower lighter fare, but makes a great match for a hearty steak or barbecued red meat. It can also work well with white meat when prepared with a richer sauce such as mole.

Sommelier Secret

Perhaps Carménère’s herbal character can be explained in part by familial relations—due to the strange nature of grapevine breeding, Carménère is both a progeny and a great-grandchild of the similarly flavored Cabernet Franc.
