Jacobs Creek St Hugo 2007

I've previously reviewed the 1998, 2003 and 2005 vintages of this wine.  The 2007 vintage has a typical Coonawarra aroma of chocolate and spice, and a drying oaky smell.  The palate has a bit of length (it's not bad), with drying tannins, some evident acidity.  Overall, this wine is a bit tough.  It may open up.  84 points.

Abv: 14.5%
Price: around $40
