full-bodied, sweet juicy fruit with lively acidity; no subtlety here but very tasty (89)

Smooth and generous, with a tart edge to the blackberry and cherry flavors. Drink now. 7,000 cases imported. -HS

This is now an Essentials so it should almost always be available. Hence the (V) for the vintage instead of a year. The 2004 was excellent. 2005 was not as good as the 2004, but still good.
I bought a bottle of the 2006 to compare. (Un)fortunately, I drank the entire bottle at one sitting, so it must be excellent!!

Nice wine. I prefer a sweeter wine, which this one is. We always get good comments back when serving to company.

Always a favourite at my house. I try to keep a couple of bottles around for company. Great sharing wine for a night in or a dinner party. 2004 as stated was a very good year for Jester. it is a sweet smokey flavour which goes well with red meats or ethnic chicken dishes.

Full bodied, sweet with intense fruit flavours. When I'm in the mood for a big Shiraz and a meal with bold flavour this is the wine I'll reach for.

My boss once gave me a bottle of this wine. Of course I appreciated the gesture (jester?)! This wine is typical of most Australian Shiraz - very big and jammy.

For my personal tastes I found it overly sweet. But if you like very big jammy Ozzy Shiraz then this one if for you! Try with rare beef or even with chococolate
