Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

St Hugo Collection

94 POINTS
James Halliday, www.winecompanion.com, 2013

"Bright crimson-purple; this is the 27th release of St Hugo, and fittingly has won a trophy and five gold medals, likely with more to come; it has an abundance of blackcurrant fruit plus nuances of regional earth and mint, then the tannins providing structure for long and distinguished ageing.”

 

Palate: Rich and powerful yet still maintaining a degree of stylish elegance, the dark berry fruit and well integrated oak flavours are supported by balanced acidity and finely structured silky tannins, leading to a persistent finish.

Cellaring Potential: Careful cellaring of this wine for the next 8-12 years will enable further development and integration of the ripe and intense fruit flavours for which it has come to be known. 

Serving Suggestion: Recommended with herb-crusted lamb rack served with Rösti of sweet potato and basil and a red wine glaze.
