Devil's Lair Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon
Ranked #20 of 52 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon from Margaret River
4 Stars
Huon Hooke

Huon Hooke

Deep red, purple rim. Intense blackberry, briary, foresty aromas. Fresh and clean and bright with unmistakeable regional dried-seaweed/nori accent. Medium to full-bodied and savoury, with ample drying tannins and a nicely oak-mellowed, savoury flavour spectrum. Not fruity/sweet at all. A grown-up style of cabernet.
Tasted: 05/08/2011
Drink: 2011 to 2025

92 Points Robert Parker

The style of the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon has changed with Oliver’s influence, bringing the Cabernet expression of this Bordeaux blend more to the forefront. It contains 14% Merlot, spent 15 months in oak, 30% new and will have had 12 months in bottle prior to its release in November 2010. Deep garnet-purple in color it has pure, pretty aromas of cassis, blackberry, cardamom, mint, pencil shavings and a whiff of Mediterranean herbs. There’s plenty of juicy fruit fleshing out the firm, fine tannins and crisp acidity, lingering through the long finish. Consider drinking it 2012 to 2020+.

94 Points James Halliday

The hue is good, although not brilliant; a classically restrained style, like pre-Parker Bordeaux; it is very well-balanced, and grows on you with each retaste, particularly its silky cassis fruit notes. Drink to 2030.
