Nose: Black licorice, hint of fruit. Tastes herbal, of mint or eucalyptus. [From "Cabernet Sauvignon" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 19 October 2013.]

Ripe and plush mouthfeel with creamy, coffee-accented cherry and currant fruit. Big finish with nice depth and richness. Tad syrupy. Big and rich. Lingers nicely. Jammy and lush. 89 pts. 1/12/13

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.

Great, rich cab fruit nose. Rich, powerful and concentrated. Palate is rich with ripe fruits. Mouth coating and rich. Really nice.

Lots of violets in the nose and on the palate, very floral. Nice polished texture and well concentrated. Pretty and elegant. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 4/3/10

Distinctly Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2013 Maitre D' has a firm structure but an amazing array of flavours. Rich, generous and complex the wine has the full spectrum of flavours going from cherry to plum to chocolate and finishing with mint and coffee. Dense fruit and fine tannins create intensity while the mouth-feel has a creaminess that adds to the texture and another level of sophistication to this great wine. I cannot remember a Mollydooker Maitre D' that has wowed me as much as the 2013. ~Matt~ - WineryCabernet has always been a favorite of mine, so it's no surprise that The Maitre D is the first bottle that I grab to share with friends over lunch or dinner. The Maitre D is a rich and complex wine that shows rich red berries and cassis. Layered between the berries is spice, vanilla and chocolate. You will also find a hint of mint that lingers on the pallet adding to the wines structure and balance, making it an outstanding wine. ~Anna~ - WineryAlc: 15.5%Residu...

I love this Cabernet for its sweet varietal fruit and the generous, creamy mouth feel. It is seamlessly balanced with smooth tannins, integrated spicy notes and intense fruit characters of fresh raspberries, blackcurrant, nutmeg and cloves, followed up wi
