Expert Reviews

Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 The Maitre d' Cabernet Sauvignon has notes of creme de cassis and black cherry preserves with a hint of mocha and a touch of hung meat. Full-bodied, the palate fills the mouth with warm berry and savory flavors supported by crisp acid and a medium level of fine grained tannins, finishing long. Rating 90 - Drink it now 2017 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (DEC/2011)
