Mauritson Wines Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

2004 Mauritson Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely a sum of its parts. Each of the vineyards brings a unique characteristic to the blend. In the front palate and the nose, it is all Dry Creek Cabernet: bright fruit, hints of mineral, and supple tannins. The mid palate is where the Alexander Valley fruit shows its stuff: signature chalky, dusty tannins, lush mouth feel and ripe red fruit. Last but certainly not least, this is the first year we have been able to use the incredible Rockpile Cabernet in our blend. These are the ties that bind it all together. The amazing intensity of the fruit is discernable from start to finish. The finely grained tannins not only complement the structure of the other vineyards, but give the wine its backbone that will allow it to age gracefully for the next 7-10 years. CASES: 680 VINEYARDS: Dry Creek, Alexander and Sonoma Valleys This is a california wine

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.
