Rob MacCulloch MW (2013 Vintage)
"Cabernet Sauvignon is such a well known grape variety that it's occasionally hard to know what you're going to get in the bottle: a massive "fruit bomb" or a mouth-puckering dry red. Luckily, really true-to-type Cabernet Sauvignon characteristics are actually quite straightforward: dense cassis fruit flavours, with a firm grip of tannins and often quite refreshing acidity, in a dry red wine style that really demands matching with food. Maison Noire Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 is characteristically in this classic style of Cabernet Sauvignon, having a dense core of ripe blackcurrant fruit ripe combined with Cabernet's typically dry, almost austere, finely textured, long, dry tannins, all supported by a balancing bite of acidity. This style of wine, with its density, tannins and freshness, is a perfect match for red meat dishes, which soften and round Cabernet-based wines into a rounder and more complete whole. Yet those same characteristics also make a Cabernet Sauvignon such as this a perfect candidate to put in a dark corner of the cellar for a few years, where some years ageing will produce complex, layered flavours and gentle tannins."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"​Already enjoyable, the 2015 vintage was grown in the Gimblett Gravels and matured for 16 months in barrels (35 per cent new). Full-coloured, with a fragrant, spicy bouquet, it is mouthfilling, with generous, ripe plum and spice flavours, finely integrated oak, savoury, earthy notes adding complexity, and gentle tannins. A very harmonious red, highly approachable in its youth, it also shows good potential and should be at its best 2019+. Priced sharply."
