#"This is a classic Aussie Cabernet with an intense varietal nose and delicious ripe fruit. This wine is named after Sparky, who earned money to put himself through winemaking college as a lefthanded Maitre D'. The grapes were grown on the Longbottom vineyard in Padthaway, the Mollydooker vineyards in McLaren vale and the Belladarren vineyard in Langhorne Creek. Pairs with Chicken liver pate, duck, roast lamb, mushroom risotto, veal, quail and pork."

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate

"Aged in 77% American oak and 33% French, 49% new, the 2009 The Maitre d' Cabernet Sauvignon has a very deep garnetpurple color. It presents intense cassis, vanilla and chocomint notes with hints bay leaf and cedar. Fullbodied with mediumfirm grainy tannins and mediumhigh acid, it provides ample flesh if slightly simple, finishing long. Drinking now, it should hold its fruit to 2015."
