Winemaker Notes

Deep dense dark and brooding in color with a rim of purple/black in the glass. The nose shows cassis and is loaded with savoury spices. The palate is generous with excellent tannin structure and lovely cassis fruits. The wine is big and rich, yet surprisingly elegant and a very long lasting after palate. Gentle dusty tannins on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon gives a deep garnet-purple color and incredibly fragrant, lifted blackberry and blackcurrant scents with complementary notes of spice box, wilted rose petals and a bit of mint. Crisp acidity and a medium-firm level of very fine tannins structure and harmonize the full bodied, lush fruit on the palate, leading to a long savory finish. Drinking now, it should keep to 2016+.

Gotham, McLaren Vale, Australia
Gotham is a new project by Bruce Clugston, a veteran in the Australian wine industry. In 2004 Bruce and his wife, Fiona White Bruce, visited New York City and had such a great time that they decided to use New York's nickname as "Gotham City" as part of their wine label. Bruce draws on 30 years of experience in the wine industry and long held desire as a former wine retailer to create a product of exceptional value that is approachable in youth as well as years down the line. Gotham wines are created from fruit sourced from the iconic wine growing regions of Australia. The Gotham wines has gradually added to their regional varieties, only producing when they come across a fruit source that they are proud to put under their label. They use the talents of some of the best winemakers in South Australia to put together a range of wines showcasing the best regions and varieties.

McLaren Vale

View all wine

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône blends with Grenache and Mourvèdre, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract and alcohol, with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style, as are ripe, tropical-fruited Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

In the Glass

High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

Perfect Pairings

Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

Sommelier Secrets

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
