“Ripe, concentrated & beautifully shaped. A rich panoply of cherry, berry, plum, mineral & licorice that sails on & on. Balanced with just enough juicy acidity to keep it honest. Smoothly integrated oak & refined tannins.” - Wine Spectator
“Fashioned from a 30-year-old vineyard, the dense ruby/purple-colored 2002 Shiraz St. Jakobi was aged 24 months in both new & old French & American barrels. Layered & full-bodied, with notes of espresso roast, creosote, blackberries, currants, licorice, & pepper, this rich, full-throttle, classic Barossa Shiraz can be consumed now.” -"The Wine Advocate"
“Vibrant mix of black & red fruits; perfectly integrated vanillin oak & fine, ripe tannins. Elegant style.” - James Halliday
