Stella Bella Suckfizzle Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 – 94 points!

Suckfizzle Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 is Stella Bella’s leading cabernet and this vintage is a cracka! Not surprising Gary Walsh from The Wine Front gave it 94 points and said ““One of the things I like most about Stella Bella/Suckfizzle reds is that they’re not afraid to carry a bit of tannin. Cabernet that lacks grip is like a wrestler without nuts … and I’m not talking jelly wrestling here either. Mulberry, blackcurrant and redcurrant, aniseed, bay leaf and gum leaf and subtle mocha oak. It’s medium to full bodied with firm, almost astringent, tannin grip – but the impression it gives is of a pleasant tussle, not a fight. It’s fresh and lively too, showing the verve and vivacity of the vintage. Some varietal herbal notes in there but excellent shape and length. All round good Cabernet.”
