St Hugo Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Dusty, leafy, the dried red earth, dark chocolate and malty, bright oak. Not the strongest aromatically…somewhat shy.

Bold flavours: leaf, capsicum, tapenade. Tannin is fine, powdery - kinda cocoa powder bitterness. It’s backed up with generous spiciness - possesses a good deal of fruit too, balanced. 

In a little slumber at present, hence the + sign: 91+

Tasted on: Saturday 14th May: Leaf to Fruit
Source: Sample
Price: $55
