Winemaker's Notes

This well balanced expression of McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon is an ode to the ‘luncheon claret', but it's not as green and austere as the favorite lunchtime libation at the gentleman's club. The fruit is from a vineyard with good breeding in the Willunga foothills and the resulting wine has been made in a fruit driven style this vintage. It has classic First Drop drinkability, so bottoms up!

Dark plum color. Cassis and plum fruit flavors with hints of nettle, tobacco leaf and tea

Black fruits with a round mid palate, an elegant core of tannins and a textured finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2009 Mother’s Ruin Cabernet Sauvignon offers pronounced notes of creme de cassis and plum preserves with nuances of chocolate, Ceylon tea and tobacco. Full bodied and rich in the mouth, it has firm grainy tannins, refreshing acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2018+. "
