Jacob's Creek Cabernet Sauvignon
Additional Cases: $0
- Jacobs Creek are the kings of 'loose change' wine, and this medium-bodied, juicy number from South Eastern Australia would fit the bill for that casual mid-week movie night munching on some cheeseburgers. Theres plenty of red berries and plums in this one, along with typical cab sav hints of red capsicum, leafiness and subtle florals. The palate is elegant and smooth, with fine approachbale tannins, bright acidity, and a fruity, succulent finish. 80

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says:“
Some handy depth here in this staple red, good colour. The nose smells of blackcurrant and hints of red berries, a little cabernet herbal streak too. The palate s supple and sturdy; it has the authority of cabernet with the right approachability as well. A very handy wine for the money.Good Wine Guide 201391
Tyson Stelzer (2009 Vintage) says:“
Pour this blind and fool any wine snob! This is no plush, jubey cheap and cheerful; it’s cabernet proper, so expect violet perfume, leaf and capsicum, edgy redcurrants and an undercurrent of fine tannins. It’ll open up in the glass and improve with a few years in the cellar, too.Wine Taste - Edition 23 201190
James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says:“
There is no question the current Jacob's Creek range is at the forefront of its price and volume peers, assuming, of course, there is no significant variation in different bottling runs. The wine has good hue, and of moderate depth. It has very clear varietal character (assuming a touch of mint is acceptable) courtesy of its blackcurrant fruit, the appropriate tannin support for its target market.Halliday's Top 100 Aussie Wines 2011 201188
Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2007 Vintage) says:“
The Jacob's Creek legend is based on the original Shiraz Cabernet, and quite rightly so. But this year the straight Cabernet Sauvignon is the better wine. Smells like a good cabernet, tastes like a good cabernet -is a good cabernet! It has flavours of blackcurrant and olives and dust, but essentially it's a fruit-driven wine of remarkable mouth-filling ability. Lots of sweet, curranty fruit flavour and quite a bit of structure too. Nice.The Big Red Wine Book 2009/10 200987
