The deep blend of red and purple colors and abundant aromas introduce the depth of this Cabernet. Rich and complex in flavor, notes of cherry and blackberry transition to green herbs, bramble and mocha all the while maintaining a dimension of sweet fruit. Soft and smooth on the palate, the 2018 Maitre D' balances flavor and structure perfectly.

Aromatic and intense, with whiffs of mahogany and palo santo that swirl around chocolate-covered coffee bean and blackberry preserve flavors at the core. Generous and layered, offering complexity, a swath of velvety, fine-grained tannins and a long finish. Drink now through 2035. 5,316 cases made, 882 cases imported.

All the Moolydooker ripeness can't hide a minty, greenish edge on the nose of the 2018 The Maitre d' Cabernet Sauvignon. It's full-bodied, ripe and chocolaty, with just enough cassis to round out the plush palate, then finishes velvety and soft. If you're a fan of Thin Mints, Peppermint Patties and the like, this is your Cab.
