Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz PDF Print E-mail
Featured Wines - Reds

Looking for a nice bottle of wine to bring to your next girls’ night or family gathering? Jam Jar has the perfect sweet wine waiting for you. The South African company Cape Classics created Jam Jar in an effort to produce a variety of sweet wines aimed to meet the quality and price point of today’s consumer. Each bottle has an approachable taste that is sure to please even the non-wine drinkers at your next gathering.

Cape Classics currently produces two varieties of Jam Jar. The white Moscato (which retails for $8 - $12) and the red Sweet Shiraz (from $7 to little more than $10) have great curb appeal, evoking the look and feel of a picnic in a bottle. The Sweet Shiraz bursts with blackberry, blueberry and raspberry flavor. It goes down easy and leaves a pleasantly sweet, but not overpowering, aftertaste. Jam Jar’s second option is the Moscato. Boasting a light and refreshing taste and accompanied by the undeniable flavor and aroma of fresh peach, this Moscato is perfect for a summer event or a cold winter evening spent longing for some beach weather! With a reasonable price tag, Jam Jar offers a selection of sweet wines that are a sure step up from the popular boxed wines reminiscent of our drunken college days. So, for those of you searching for a quality sweet wine—or even if you’re typically not a wine drinker, but want a bottle to help break into the wonderful world of wine—give Jam Jar a try.

Bourgueil, France
2009


It is a big boy! This particular bottle really showcases how big Cabernet Franc can be. With minimal fruit expression on the nose, one can feel the menthol masking the deep plum and currant. On the palate, blackberry is tasted from the front through the mid palate and finishes with incredible tannins that linger long after each taste. This wine is recommended with food. As much as I enjoy sipping on the biggest bottle of red I can find, this is not for for the faint at heart. I suggest opening the bottle and letting some oxygen smooth out the tannins. The dark flavors and tannic structure would pair perfectly with the pungency of blue cheese. My perfect pairing? Filet encrusted with black peppercorns, topped with blue cheese. Shockingly, this wine is priced between $10-$15. I highly recommend this bottle for someone who has used the phrase, "The bigger, the better."

Domaine de Pallus, Chinon, France
2008

Chinon is an incredible growing region for Cabernet Franc. This wine is a true expression of the region and varietal. Showcasing blackberry and intense spice on the nose and palate, strong tannins follow. Medium- to full-bodied, this wine is relatively high in acid and is slightly herbaceous. This is a great value wine, as one could find this online for around $15, which was a surprise. It is always a delight when the price point is far below the initial hypothesized value. Les Pensées de Pallus would be a great one to lose "Cab Franc Virginity” to without breaking the bank and fully grasping the highlights of the varietal.

Columbia Valley, Washington State, USA
2009

This Washington state blend jumped out as a star. With varietal composition of 64% Merlot and 36% Cabernet Franc, Buty displays the control and elegance that these grapes can have, with bright fruit on the nose and front palate, preserved strawberries with a touch of vanilla with the unexpected tannins finishing the taste. Being incredibly well-balanced, this wine would be fun to pair and easily consumed. My recommended pairing would be pork tenderloin with a tree fruit compote. The wine notes of a slight sweetness on the palate, which would complement a fruit sauce that is so often served with pork. I would keep this wine with pork or poultry; it wouldn't quite stand up to a bone-in marbleized piece of beef. Buty is not an everyday drinking wine; each vintage is released on March 1st and each bottle is sold for $40—and it is well worth it—but perhaps wait to enjoy on a special occasion.
