2005 Jacobs Creek Grenache Shiraz, South Australia ($9)

WINE FIND

April 26, 2006|By MICHAEL DRESSER

This flavorful, lively, youthful red wine fills a useful niche. It's a bit wild and rustic, with a kind of character you'd expect to find from a small winery in the south of France rather than a large Aussie outfit. It's a medium-bodied wine with lively blackberry, black-cherry, herb and meaty flavors. It's not complex, but it's thoroughly enjoyable. Serve with grilled meats, from chicken to beef.
