I’ve had this one in the cellar since 2006. The write up I had said drink until 2012. Dark in color with a with a nose of red berries and some wood. On the mid pallet the wine has some lovely red berries and some firm acidity. It coats the mouth with velvety tannins. On the finish the wine is still quite a big wine. The wine has a medium length finish. I would give it a solid 90. Originally paid $19.95, not currently in the LCBO. Yummy.
Notes from when I bought it (from the LCBO web site):
ST HALLETT CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2004
Barossa, South Australia While the Barossa Valley area is often noted for its Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon vines have also thrived there for over a century. St Hallett’s winemakers Stuart Blackwell and Matt Grant employ a combination of traditional techniques with the latest technologies to craft this quintessentially Barrosan Cab. Stuffed with cassis and berry fruit flavours with notes of mint and chocolate this medium full-bodied wine is ready to drink with hearty venison stew or old-fashioned pot roast.
