Jacob's Creek Reserve Pinot Noir

Cracka Review

Colour: 
Bright cherry red 
Bouquet: 
A fresh and complex nose showing lifted summer berry fruits as well as 
more savoury elements of dried herbs and exotic spices, against a subtle 
backdrop of integrated cedar/cinnamon oak 

Palate: 
Spicy and aromatic, layered with complex sour cherry fruit flavours and 
understated, stylish oak. The structure is delicate and savoury, with 
finely textured tannins and balanced acidity leading to a refined and 
lingering finish. 

Cellaring Potential: 
Drink now, but note this wine will also reward by careful cellaring for up to 
5 years. 

Serving suggestion: 
An ideal accompaniment to roast duck or mushroom ragu with polenta 

Alcohol: 
13.1% alcohol by volume

Jacob's Creek Reserve Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2011 Vintage) says
A light, bright Adelaide Hills pinot here. This has smooth berry fruits with hints of bracken, strawberry, raspberry and gentle perfume. The palate s bright and crunchy with simple red fruit flavours; tannins creep up through the finish.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Soft, perfumed, spicy nose with a savoury suggestion, and a firm, creamy, strawberry palate with good acid balance.

It's a bargain. It tastes of nutmeg and marzipan mixed with deep, grainy, sour cherries. Whether it sounds so or not, it tastes lovely. This is foot-stomped and played around with in the winery - it's the Jacob's Creek winemakers' favourite toy. A little gem.
