Review of 2009 Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz

Happy Hour: 2009 Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz

One bottle that stood out amongst the rest at the New York Wine and Food Festival was the 2009 Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz. It was unlike anything else I've sipped before. It's a sweet red wine that's very different from a Port. It's not syrupy or thick, but smooth, full-bodied, and very fruity. The knowledgeable gentleman at the Drink South African table (the grapes are grown in South Africa's Paarl region) informed me that Jam Jar is best served slightly chilled. I couldn't agree more, the cold red was refreshing and perfectly balanced with neither too much sweetness or acidity. Jam Jar pairs wonderfully with dark chocolate, so if you are a fan of red wine and chocolate, I highly recommend this lovely Shiraz!
