Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Production: 170 cases
Mauritson’s vision for LOAM is simple: to produce exceptional Cabernet Sauvignons in Sonoma County by cultivating exemplary vineyards defined by their soil. All wines in the LOAM series are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 100% identical clone and rootstock – but embody the single variable of the soil in which they were grown.
LOAM Cabernet Sauvignon is Mauritson’s proprietary blend of grapes sourced from vineyards planted in Positas, Suther, and Clough soils. It is composed of the best vineyards, grown in the best soil, from the best appellations. 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.
Four Corners Wine: “A real ‘WOW’ Cabernet! Rich and intense on the nose with bags of grilled herbs meat juices, an almost compote/red wine jus note, a touch of caramelised mushroom, and a core of pure blackcurrant. On the palate it’s extremely refined, youthful, and pure, with a juicy core boasting great depth and texture. It’s an intense Cabernet, hugely appealing and distinct in its character. Stunning now, easier 15+ years of cellaring potential too.” (Dec. 2022)
