Creek of the Week: Jacob's Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Classic 2006

The Jacob's Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Classic is a true value wine. This wine retails at $6-$8 a bottle and never ceases to amaze consumers. This inky red wine has profound eucalyptus notes combined with mint and black cherries and subtle undertones of oak.

Full bodied in the mouth, the eucalyptus and mint follow through with notes of plum in the finish with an almost jammy characteristic. The wine is definitely fruit driven incorporating soft tannins and high acidity for an easily approachable wine, crafted to be drunk young.

This Cabernet Sauvignon would pair well with red sauce and pastas, lightly braised meats and sharp cheeses.
