89 Points Robert Parker

2008 was a difficult year in the Hunter Valley due to rains at harvest that devastated all but a few patches of red grapes. In 2008 Lake’s Folly was only able to harvest the Cabernet Sauvignon; hence they put this vintage under a different label: 2008 Folly Red. This is a surprisingly good effort with fragrant black currant and blackberry aromas at the core plus hints of baking spices. Medium-bodied with a good amount of mid-palate flesh, it is well structured with crisp acid and a medium level of medium-grained tannins. The finish is long if more straightforward than you might expect for the Cabernets label. Drink it now through 2014.
