WA 90 WS 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - 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. Drink it now 2017.
According to Wine Spectator - Very ripe, a plush mouthful of creamy, coffee-accented cherry and currant fruit, lingering on the expressive, almost explosive, finish. Has depth and richness, if a bit syrupy. Drink now through 2018. 9,365 cases made.
Winemaker Notes - This is a classic Aussie Cabernet with an intense varietal nose and delicious ripe fruit. This wine is named after Sparky, who earned money to put himself through winemaking college as a left-handed Maitre D'. Rated 90+
