2017 Devil's Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon

Blueberry, cassis and pencil shaving notes, with a touch of mint on the nose. The palate is well structured with grippy yet ripe tannin, black fruit and dark chocolate together with bright acidity give a long clean finish. A solid, savoury Cabernet Sauvignon that will benefit from 12+ years cellaring.


The season started with good soil moisture enabling early spring growth, followed by ideal flowering conditions in November. The hot weather through December and January helped control the growth and wet weather in February freshened the canopies to ensuring even ripening. The ripening period from veraison was ideal with exceptional acid retention and cool climate flavour development.
