91 Points Robert Parker
The 2006 St. Jakobi Shiraz was sourced from an estate vineyard planted in 1975 and aged for 20 months in a mix of new and used French and American oak hogsheads. Deep purple in color, it exhibits an expressive nose of smoke, bacon, violets, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Ripe, sweet, and concentrated on the palate, it conceals enough silky tannin under a blanket of savory fruit to evolve for 3-5 years. Drink this lengthy effort from 2012 through 2022.
