Jacob’s Creek Classic Cabernet Merlot

Hailing largely from Langhorne Creek and Big Rivers, this blend of 55% cabernet sauvignon and 42% merlot reflects impressively varietal accents of redcurrants, capsicum and leaf. Tangy acidity and finely structured tannins provide good support, and will benefit from another year in bottle to soften. $8 at Jim’s Cellars.
