Devil’s Lair Dance with the Devil Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
This is a newish label for Devil’s Lair, and they’ve started very well. This is something of an experimental wine apparently, though I’m not sure what that means.
Deep red purple, this has a quite juicy nose of purple berry fruit with a dash of mint. All very easy and juicy but with some regional eucalypt for good measure. Dry, surprisingly savoury, rather well balanced palate is just a bit sharp edged but offers genuine tannins and a real Margs character that matches off with the juicy fruit very nicely.
Not wild, but seriously well made, medium bodied early-ish drinker (though it will last a few years yet) and well priced. Good stuff.
Details: 14%, Screwcap, $25
Tasted: May 2015 (sample)
Score: 17.5/20, 91/100
Would I buy it? I’d a go a glass or two for starters.
