Good old Jacob’s Creek. Always one of Australia’s reasonable and reliable labels, they’ve gone and upped the ante with some exotic wood on two of their most popular reds.
Just relaeased: the 2nd vintage of Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Shiraz and their Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon–which were already quite a mouthfull–and added a new element. After spending time in traditional toasted oak barrels, the wines are then finished in used whiskey barrels. The Cab is finished in Irish whiskey barrels and the Shiraz gets used Scotch barrels. The result is softer tannins, deeper richness, flavor that goes on and on. 20.00
