Jacob’s Creek Shiraz 2005

Wine:  Jacob’s Creek Shiraz 2005

Price: $4.99

Region: South Eastern Australia

Grape Variety: Shiraz

Purchased: Surdyk’s, Minneapolis, MN 

What a wonderful wine to enjoy with a homemade pizza!  Honestly, this may have been the steal of the annual Surdyk’s wine sale.  We originally found this reviewed in Food & Wine Magazine, and the deal seemed too good to be true.  In fact, it’s even better.  This wine has a rich nose, with cherry and plum in abundance.  The deep ruby color is visually pleasing as you raise the glass, and as the wine rolls across the tongue you feel the warm sensation of ripe fruit with a peppery edge.  The finish is the tiniest bit rough, but pleasant, and it lingers for a long moment.  The non-sale price is closer to $7.00 per bottle, and I’ll gladly pay that as well.  This is a go-to wine, and now that we know it we’ll be stocking more in the future.
