Longview Devil’s Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Handpicked fruit. Maturation for 18 months in new (20%) and older French oak. Vegan friendly.

Longview, Devil’s Elbow, Cabernet Sauvignon, Adelaide Hills, 2017

 

Blackberry, blueberry muffin and 2B pencil with plush chocolately comfort, roast capsicum, peppermint, cigarillo ash, and hints of meaty dumpling. Plump front palate, full with black and blue fruits before stern but even tannins turn the screws tight. That tight finish gives nod to the Adelaide Hills acidity that keeps it ramrod straight. Length and layers and mocha. Will easily last for a decade or more.

RRP: $30
Alc: 14%
Rating: 18.25/20
