Winemaker's Notes:

A stylish classic Coonawarra Cabernet. Medium term cellaring will reveal a complex, stylish wine.Those who drink it now will be rewarded, however the 2004 Jacob's Creek St Hugo will age gracefully and become more powerful and complex for those who choose to carefully cellar it for 5 to 10 years.

Color:Full depth red with crimson highlights.
Bouquet:Lifted cassis and blackberry fruit with dark chocolate complemented by subtle cedar oak notes.
Palate:Concentrated cassis, blackberry and mint flavours combined with spicy cedar oak and youthful, fine grained tannins. The richness and intensity of fruit flavour is perfectly balanced with fresh acidity, and the complexity of the French oak used enhances the dense varietal fruit characters.

About Jacob's Creek:

With over 150 years of making wine in the Barossa Valley, Jacob's Creek's winemaking philosophy is to make high quality wines in a contemporary Australian style, which are fresh, elegant, great tasting and show true varietal character. From its beginnings in 1847, a young Bavarian immigrant named Johann Gramp planted the Barossa Valley's first commercial vineyard on the banks of Jacob's Creek. His first vineyard was in a small ironstone winery and visitors can still walk the historic vineyard, inspect the original cellar and feel a true sense of place for Jacob's Creek. Today, Jacob's Creek is one of the leading forces of Australian wine, creating wines with true character with a variety of different offerings from its portfolio.
