This is a classically beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon with sweet fresh black fruit and loamy earth overlay and toasty notes. Black cherry, cedar notes, spice and cocoa bean shavings balance the density and the generous but refined tannins of this vintage.
The 2015 Mauritson Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is restrained and complex. Taking advantage of our incredible diversity of fruit sourcing, we can home in on the best Northern Sonoma County has to offer. Each vineyard and each varietal add nuance and layer to the blend, creating a wine that is subtle and over-delivers.
The Malbec provides depth and concentration, while the Merlot and Cabernet Franc provide elegance and complexity worthy of their Bordeaux roots. Still driven by its youth, this wine will age gracefully, revealing its secondary and tertiary notes in the next 2-3 years. Drink for 10+ years.
