2010 Longview Devil’s Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon

longview cabBig boy Cabernet from the Adelaide Hills. Not my cup of tea but its sheer ballsy-ness will win many over.

Loaded up with clove spiced chocolate malted milkshake oak for extra oomph. Buckets of blackcurrants, menthol and licorice with some Black Ox pouch tobacco. A bit of distracting warmth. It’s not shrinking violet. Feel free to add points if it sounds good to you. 88
