This wine has stood up to aging well given its relatively modest status. Still fruity and vibrant with a reasonable body and length. The balance was fine, if on the thin side, and there was a good amount of berry fruits on the palate. Still a good and enjoyable drink with some life in it yet!
Red cherry and vegetal notes immediately upon opening. Followed by more sour cherry, cabbage, light peppery notes and blackcurrant jam. Tastes of red cherry, tobacco, leather, light clove and pepper, with an acidic back drop. Still pungent on the nose and long in the mouth. The balance is still towards the fruit although the tannin seems to still be present. Quite complex for its age and very enjoyable.
On the nose, red cherry, guava, tree bark and some warm peppery spices. The flavour was initially very fruity with strong notes of cherry, damson and tropical fruits. Very well balanced albeit somewhat light and silky. Full mouthed and long in the finish. Neither tannic or acidic in character. An excellent bottle of wine.
Jacob's Creek - Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon
Consistent and enjoyable.
