Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Mauritson opens with a funky tomato leaf and chocolate bouquet with hints of oak and espresso. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, lush and juicy. The flavor profile is mocha and slightly tart red plum blend with notes of black currant. We also picked up some hints of green olive. cedar, and cinnamon. The finish is dry and moderate dusty tannins linger and last for a long time. This wine definitely benefits from some aeration. After decanting, the Tasting Panel would pair this Cab with a Kona coffee encrusted prime rib. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2019 "Loam" Cabernet Sauvignon is perfectly structured. Loam balances the brightness and focused tannins of hillside fruit with the dense, rich characteristics of fruit grown in the ancient riverbed and valley floor soils. Our 2019 Loam is an exceptional example of an intricately detailed wine. Not one note outshines the other but rather a harmonious balance of violet petal, candied blue and purple fruits, dustings from star of anise, sweet red cherry skin, cocoa, and dried underbrush. Great freshness with silky tannins make this energetic Cabernet Sauvignon quite approachable for such a young wine, but it still carries the hallmark length and finesse one would expect from our single soil series Cabernets. This beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon will age gracefully for 10+ years.
