2002 Jacob's Creek Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, South Australia ($11)

WINE FIND

November 30, 2005|By MICHAEL DRESSER

This well-made cabernet has a touch of the "dusty" quality that distinguishes wines from the prestigious Rutherford Bench of California's Napa Valley. Combine that with the smooth, intense flavors of blackberry, black currant, anise, chocolate and spices and you've got one heck of a cabernet for the price. It doesn't have the rustic, leathery flavors of many Australian cabernets.

Serve with --beef, lamb, hard cheeses
