Mauritson Wines Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smoky with plenty of noticeable oak spice on the nose and a vanilla streak layered in with a little olive framed tart bright red and black cherry fruit. Middleweight though fairly structured in the mouth with nice angular tannins that lend a rustic edge to the palate. There's also rather high, refreshing acids here supporting raspberry and black cherry fruit in a clear, firm style that leads to a firm finish filled with sweet wood spice notes. 89pts

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.

Quite dark purple color. Pretty serious oak/vanilla bouquet. On the initial taste, this is a medium bodied red wine that does not cram a bunch of fruit down your gullet to convince you to drink it--or to discourage you. It is quite lean. There are some berry hints, but pretty tame. Quite a bit of tartness makes me want to keep drinking. US$37.00 from the winery club last fall.
