Jacob’s Creek Shiraz 2003 is a typical great Shiraz value… a price way under ten bucks a bottle, a nice combination of fruit and complexity… what’s not to like? The Jacob’s Creek Shiraz has a spicy aroma with a strong hint of licorice, and mixes berry and plum fruit with balanced oak and tannins. The finish is slightly astringent, but not unpleasant. It would be a great accompaniment to any kind of casual dining, particularly for beef or spicier fare.
