jacob's creek st hugo cabernetgrape: Cabernet

country: Australia

region: Coonawarra, which is known for its deep red “Terra Rosa” soil that gives its wines a lot of intensity and concentration

yum factors: Had this at a 9-wine Jacob’s Creek dinner last night at the Bouley Test Kitchen and this was my favorite by far. I usually don’t taste black olive in anything but Italian reds, but this was really yummy liquid black olive! Under that there was some delicious ripe blackberry and a hint of orange. Phenoms with steak.
