Rich, round and complex, this wine is simply awesome. The Maitre D’ has an enticing perfumed nose of blackberry, plum, cigar box and a touch of cinnamon. Overwhelming flavors of blackcurrant and dark cherry carry forward, accompanied by mouth filling layers of mocha, spice and vanilla.
Wine Spectator(From 2009 Vintage) "Smooth, rich and powerful, layered with blackberry, licorice, roasted meat and bay leaf flavors that roll easily into the expressive finish. Drink now through 2016. 12,738 cases made." –HS
