Wine.comThe wine displays the smooth texture and elegant structure typical of Coonawarra Cabernet, and is a stylish wine from a great vintage. Color: Deep red with vibrant crimson hues. Bouquet: Complex aromas of ripe blackberry and cassis, flawlessly integrated with charry, spiced oak. The fruit characters are rich and concentrated, and are highlighted by undertones of salty licorice. Palate: Concentrated cassis, blackberry and mint flavors combined with spicy cedar oak and youthful, fine grained tannins. The richness and intensity of fruit flavor is perfectly balanced with fresh acidity, and the complexity of the French oak used enhances the dense varietal fruit characters. Those who drink it now will be rewarded, however the 2003 St Hugo will age gracefully and become more powerful and complex for those who choose to carefully cellar it for 5 to 10 years.
