Winemaker Notes

The sheer force of fruit in Director's Cut Cabernet Sauvignon is as much a testament to the vineyards as the winemaker's skill. Deep purple color heralds blackcurrant accompanied by ripe red cherry. A mouth coating texture and supple tannin structure create an experience of perfect equilibrium. However, the true character is more easily appreciated in the complex layers of spice; licorice, nutmeg and star anise with mint in the background. The considerable length on the finish confirms the quality and enhances the enjoyment of this fine wine.

Wine Spectator
Ripe and smooth, with a supple texture supporting dark berry, black currant and savory spice flavors that extend into a long, deep finish. Offers intensity and presence. Drink now through 2020.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Director’s Cut Cabernet Sauvignon is profoundly scented of ripe blackcurrants, licorice and eucalyptus with hints of choco-mint and cloves. Full-bodied and laden with minted cassis flavors, it has a medium level of rounded tannins, crisp acid and a finish that has great length if a little straightforward. Drink it now to 2019.

Heartland, Australia
Heartland The Team Behind Heartland Wines Winery Image
Owner and winemaker Ben Glaetzer’s work in Langhorne Creek is one of the most exciting stories in Australia today. Heartland Wines came out of a lunch in 1999 between Ben and three friends, and a fear that rather than expressing the diversity of sites and rich history of the country, Australian wines were heading in a generic, commercial direction. Ben had grown excited at older, high quality vineyards he had seen in the cool-climate Langhorne Creek area, Australia’s oldest settled wine region, one hour south of Adelaide and southeast of McLaren Vale. With a temperature summation approximately equivalent to Alsace, the best Langhorne Creek vineyards benefit from very cool nights that offset warm days, with temperature swings that can reach nearly 40 degrees within a day. The Heartland Wines from Langhorne Creek display the originality and appeal of the area’s regional and varietal characteristics – they are food-friendly, balanced wines offering tremendous value.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
