Winemaker's Notes

This is a great wine that truly expresses the Cabernet grape. Perfumed with violets and wild berries, it displays strong varietal characters and lovely ripe plum fruit. Seamless and elegant, this wine is charming with lovely rich fruit, fine grain dusty tannins, and a long coffee chocolate finish.

This wine is great with fish, white meats, red meats, salads and cheeses. Optimum drinking: now - 4 years.

"The 2005 Maitre d' Cabernet (32% from Padthaway and 68% from Langhorne Creek) was aged in a combination of American and French oak, 40% of which was new. It is a superb Cabernet Sauvignon offering creamy creme de cassis notes intermixed with hints of licorice, new wood, and spice box. Full-bodied with great intensity, purity, density, and opulence as well as a voluptuous texture, rich mid-palate, and long, full-bodied, supple finish displaying notions of roasted coffee and white chocolate, it is hard to believe Cabernet Sauvignon can hit this level of quality at this price point. These wines are meant to be consumed young, but it is hard to believe these knock-out reds won't last for 5-10 years. Two more expensive Mollydooker cuvees will be reviewed in my full Australian report in the October issue."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
