Expert Reviews

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 The Maitre D' Cabernet Sauvignon presents aromas of blackcurrant cordial, blackberry preserves and cloves with hints of baking spices and vanilla. Very big and very full, the palate is a little compacted though offers great richness framed by low to medium level chewy tannins and a long finish. Drink it now to 2018+. Rating 87 - Drink 50 2018 Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (FEB/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes

Rich, round and complex, this wine is simply awesome. The Maitre D’ has an enticing perfumed nose of blackberry, plum, cigar box and a touch of cinnamon. Overwhelming flavours of blackcurrant and dark cherry carry forward, accompanied by mouth filling layers of mocha, spice and vanilla. Amazing! Peter
