After seeing much praise for Jacob’s Creek on the Twitters, I decided to conduct my own taste test.
Aptly named, this Shiraz Cabernet from south eastern Australia is 66% Shiraz, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 13.9% alcohol. The bottle also features a clever wine-glass shaped QR code.
Peppery plums and cedary oak, smooth finish, pleasantly soothing after a long day of work.
I would claim that Staples customers drive me to drink but the truth is that they just give me something to rant about while I’m drinking – which I would do anyway because wine is delicious.
That being said, Staples customers are doing a great job of compelling me to quit Staples, which will be happening soon enough.
Anyhoo, Jacob’s Creek Shiraz Cabernet is a fine example of Australian Wine and, with recent events in California likely to adversely affect wine supply in the coming years, now seems like a good time to explore wine from other regions.
