Mollydooker Cabernet Sauvignon Langhorne Creek the Maitre D 2009
AUD$47. A blend of McLaren Vale fruit with Langhorne Creek. Aged in 80/20 American/French oak with 53% new. Intense inky black color. Intense aromas of blackcurrant, liquor vapours, mint, dark chocolate and a warm pan grille. Very over-powering for the end of the night. I really need my eye fillet steak with all the horse radish for this one! Full-bodied and full throttle joocey, robust berry jam flavours with baking spice, nutmeg, plenty of acid but that’s an afterthought. 15% alc. Surprisingly, even the tannins get overcome by the fruit weight. I raised the white flag after one glass. Some may love this style of wine, but I’m not in that bunch. But a well-made wine, no doubts about that. Drink 2015 – 2020. 92/100.

The Maitre D' is 100% Cabernet sourced from the Mollydooker Home Vineyard in Adelaide and vineyards in Padthaway. The aromatics on this Cabernet were intense; they lured me into the glass and made my mouth water. I picked up hints of dark cherry, currants

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'.
The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon The Matre D' was raised in 50% new French and American oak for 11 months. Opaque purple-colored with legs that ooze down the glass, it displays a reticent bouquet that with coaxing reveals wood smoke, violets, black currant and blackberry. This is followed by a full-bodied wine with a glossy texture, succulent fruit, and excellent concentration. This pleasure bent effort can be enjoyed over the next 6-8 years.
