Mauritson Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The resulting wines have bright fruit, well-structured tannins and balanced acidity. The 2009 Mauritson Sonoma County Cabernet is both dense and expressive in the nose. Dark fruit is complemented by aromas of tobacco, cassis, vanilla and hints of mineral. On the front palate, the wine exhibits juicy tannins and lush fruit, giving way to sweet oak in the mid palate. With ample Merlot, the wine has round tannins and soft edges. There is nothing astringent or overpowering, yet the delicacy and complexity can not fully be appreciated until after the last sip is gone. The small crop yielded wines with balanced tannins and acidity, making them extremely food friendly and age able for the next 6-8 years.

With over 270 acres of estate vineyards and close relationships with longtime growers throughout Sonoma County, we are able to source and manage our favorite blocks from each vineyard throughout the growing season and select the most premium fruit during harvest.Each vineyard and appellation we source from carry particular qualities in either the terroir or the farming style that we look for when considering a Mauritson wine release. Six generations of farming has taught us a few things about choosing premium fruit! Each harvest, the best from our 230 acres throughout the Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys is reserved for our Estate Wines. These wines, which include our signature Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon, showcase the fruit-forward, floral and spice-driven characteristics attributed to these appellations. Winemaking may have been the logical evolution in our family’s long history of farming in the Dry Creek Valley, however, it took an absence from the valley and attention to those inner voices that led Clay Mauritson back to these same vineyards that he spent planting, tending and picking as a teen. What he came to realize was that he already had a lifetime of understanding about the subtleties and strengths of each micro-climate within the Dry Creek, Rockpile and Alexander Valleys. The only thing left was to DREAM BIG! Tasting Room We are open daily from 10-5. Group Tasting by Appointment, Handicap Accessible, Picnic Facilities, Wine Tasting, Wine Tours by Appointment.
