91 Points Robert Parker
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 St. Jakobi Shiraz begins with quite a meaty and earthy nose before opening up to a core of warm blackberries and blueberries with a hint of anise. Full-bodied and nicely poised in the mouth, it offers both plenty of fruit and finesse within a frame of very finely grained tannins, balanced acid and a great, lengthy finish. Drink it now to 2020+.
