A name change marketing nightmare. What could have possessed them to think that adding the words JACOBS CREEK would help them sell more of this wine? To be fair, I suppose it has a following of dedicated wine drinkers that will not be affected regardless of what it is called and this is one way of reaching a new audience who base their wine buying decisions on label name.
Anyway, a superb Riesling with a lovely deep and lively straw color and a steely nose of citrus and a hint of caramel with undercurrents of honey and lime. The palate is superbly textured with excellent length and depth. I prefer this to the 2003, its drinkable now and will be one of those Rieslings that linger for decades, gaining flavor and complexity each year. Its just such a shame they were so hard to get hold of.
