We put the Jacob's Creek wines to the Boomer Brief test and virtually tasted our way through all five. The "virtual" (Air quotes again. I know, have me killed.) part of this tasting was that we were connected via the world wide intertube down to Australia where we "virtually" tasted alongside Jacob's Creek Chief Winemaker, Bernard Hickin. It was 9:30 a.m. Down Under and 5 p.m. in Colleywood when we popped our corks.
How'd it go? Virtually speaking...it went well. Let's to the
Jacob's Creek Reserve Wines
I give all the Jacob's Creek Reserve Wines in this tasting 4 CORKS (out of 5).
Wines are rated on a scale of one-five corks. A one-cork wine is good for killing fire ants; five-cork wines are reserved for sharing with your very best friends or drinking whenever you have a good day.
About MeI've been a wine lover since about 12 (that's not a typo). My earliest grape experience was probably at my cousin Nancy's wine tasting wedding rehearsal dinner (thanks for including me, Cuz!). Since then, I've graduated from Boone's Farm (Ugh! What was I thinking?) to a slightly more sophisticated palate. By the time I reached college I was the only guy in the dorm with a dog-eared copy of Frank Schoonmaker's, Encyclopedia of Wine (Hasting's House, 1965). Today, my tastes run more toward the reds, but I'm always on the lookout for great white wine to pair with fish or fowl.
