Mauritson Wines Buck Pasture Vineyard Malbec 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

While it may not be from Argentina, this is quintessential Malbec. Aromas of ripe strawberries, berry cobbler, and white pepper are complemented with hints of earth and fragrant herbs. The wine is fresh and vibrant on the front palate with loads of red fruit and a hint of spice. The mid palate tannins are complemented by rich oak giving the wine a round and lush mouth feel. The Malbec finishes with good balanced acidity, making you aware that the wine will age gracefully for the next 5-7 years, but it is more than enjoyable now.

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.
