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.
This is a very well balance wine - fruit, EtOH, tannis and oak. Exceptional!!
