Wine of the Week for June 25, 2007

Jacobs Creek Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 - $22.95 (1.5 l)
Style: R2

It's tempting to write this off as party plonk -- and it would be an excellent choice even then -- but this wine holds more than enough character to please any crowd. The colour is deep black cherry. The nose presents huge spice, cedar, dark chocolate black berry and black current aromas. The palate is perhaps a bit timid, but shows a nice juiciness with blackberry flavour and sinewy tannins. Body and length are both very good. A good match for BBQ ribs, brisket, or pepper steak. (LCBO 19612)

Also available in 750 mil, at $12.15 (LCBO 106377)
