Jacobs Creek Grenache Shiraz 2010
Lifted dark spiced fruits bombastically emerge from the bottle. While I say bombastically it would be more appropriately to give reference to the house of pain song 'jump around' as the flavours of raspberry skittles, spice and earth ridden tar play havoc with my buoyant taste buds. These flavours never get above medium body, which is nice to see, while the tannins are light and chalky providing an element of intellectual seduction. For a wine that sits under 10 bucks this over delivers in spades.
