 Tasted by WimHH on 1/6/2015: Website Albert Heijn http://www.ah.nl/producten/product/wi183608/jacob-s-creek-cabernet-sauvignon-reserve

Doordat deze Cabernet op houten vat heeft gerijpt, proef je naast fruit ook zoete aroma's van vanille en kokos. Dat past goed bij exotische gerechten.

Smaak: Stevig
Druivenras: Cabernet Sauvignon
Land/Streek: AustraliŽ, Coonawarra
Lekker bij: Rundvlees, Gegrild vlees
De grote Hamersma: 8

Het verhaal achter Jacob's Creek is er een dat je vaak hoort in een land vol immigranten. Hier was het Johann Gramp uit Beieren die heimwee had naar de wijnen van thuis. En dus plantte hij wijnstokken op een grondje bij de kreek met de naam Jacob's Creek. Daarmee begon in 1847 wat nu een van de bekendste brands van de wereld is. Voor ons betekent Jacob's Creek een vertrouwd merk voor soepele wijnen met een fruitige smaak. Gewoon makkelijk genieten, samen of met vrienden, met wat borrelhapjes of bij het eten. In AustraliŽ zelf is Jacob's Creek meer dan alleen wijn. Aan het riviertje waar het allemaal ooit begon, ligt een soort wijnpretpark waar van alles rondom wijn is te beleven. Deze attractie trekt jaarlijks duizenden bezoekers. (348 views)
 Tasted by graemeg on 11/19/2014: {screwcap, 14%} XA in June pretty much nailed this. Currant-like aromas & flavours, rather like the way a slightly cheap plastic flower resembles the original. Manages to be slightly sweet and slightly green at the same time on the medium-bodied palate; the tannins are soft but gritty and the finish fades like blue paint. It's competent in the wine-as-beverage sense; not for anyone looking for any real interest. I suspect the 'reserve' moniker means ever less as Pernod Ricard create yet more tiers of higher level label 'brands', so the grapes going into this are nowhere near the quality of those in the inaugural vintages of the late 90s.

 Tasted by garethb on 9/1/2014 & rated 80 points: Nothing much to signify reserve status.

Under-ripe perhaps too. (502 views)
 Tasted by df1962 on 8/30/2014: PnP at a party no score. Struck me as having a bit too much of what I don't like in a Cab Sauv as in too many green notes trying to be covered by too much cheap oak. Would not buy again (477 views)
 Tasted by Xavier Auerbach on 6/23/2014 & rated 86 points: The nose displays ripe but rather sweet blackcurrant fruit, eucalyptus and tobacco leaf, spicy oak, neither very deep nor very complex; relatively light weight for the extraction, 14% ABV and the oak treatment, grippy tannins, nice balance; decent length. Much better than the dismal 2009, but this still does not really live up to its billing as a "Coonawarra Reserve". Lower yields might be a start. (774 views)
