Huon Hooke

Huon Hooke

Deep-ish colour with a brick-red edge; the bouquet is mature and complex, with tobacco, cedary notes and a trace of Vegemite. In the mouth, it's still quite firm and the flavour is intense and focused. Concentration, length and structure, but also elegance. Very long carry. This superb wine has it all. (One of the first Olmos to be cabernet franc-dominant. 62% cabernet franc, 17% merlot, 16% malbec, 5% cabernet sauvignon)
Tasted: 29/05/2018
Drink: to 2028

92 Points Robert Parker

A blend of 62% Cabernet Franc, 17% Merlot, 16% Malbec and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2008 Olmo's Reward was fermented in French oak, 35% new, and aged in oak for 18 months. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it offers a wonderfully expressive nose of ripe red currants, black raspberries and mulberries over aromas of chocolate box, anise, Chinese five spice and a whiff of cedar. Full bodied and concentrated, it is nicely balanced in the mouth with crisp acidity providing lift to the richness and a medium to firm level of fine-grained tannins lending approachable yet age-worthy texture. The finish is long and layered. It's tempting to drink now but should improve with another 12 months in bottle, drinking to 2019+.
