Orlando St.Hugo Cabernet Sauvignon

The St. Hugo Coonawarra brand is a bit of an unsung hero. I thoroughly enjoyed the 1998 a couple of years ago.

The 2001 St. Hugo Coonawarra shows lively redcurrant and blackcurrant character. It is not as fleshy as, say, the 98, but there is enough fruit to carry the wine through the mid palate. The wine finishes with nice tannins and the wine is overall well balanced. The wine is starting to mellow, but has definitely 3-4 more years of freshness in it.

Score: 90/0
