I have a sweet tooth, there’s no getting around it. I don’t even try to deny it anymore. So when I see a wine that I know I like such as Shiraz, along with the adjective “sweet,” I have to try it. So it was with Jam Jar. The name even sounds sweet. And if you like sweet wines it’s kind of a treat. It’s pretty darn sweet, bordering on dessert wine territory. It even has a sweet aroma, sort of like blueberry pie filling. The flavor has a lot of berry flavors, most notably blueberry and blackberry. It has a weighty mouthfeel and I detect some tannins on the finish. It’s not for everyone but if you’re a fellow Shiraz lover with a sweet tooth I’d give it a try.
