In the middle of packing for an interstate move….came across this orphan sample from the lads at Longview. They’ve moved on to the 2012 now, such is the downside of having a full time job
Named after the one of the hairpin turns on the old road into the vineyard, this isn’t angelic nor demonic…a bit more impish. Definitelty on the dark side but not evil… Cool climate stalky cabernet. Lots of jubey cassis & tinned black plum syrup with superfine tannins. A little smokey cigar box adds to the intrigue.
Will last a couple more years but is good for now…so sacrifice this with some bbq goat and go for a walk on the dark side.
