Our vision for LOAM is simple: produce the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon 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.
-- Mauritson Wines
Leading off the 100% Cabernet Sauvignon releases, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Loam is all Cabernet brought up 28 months in French oak. Notes of cassis, blueberries, cedary spice, and earth give way to a supple, polished, elegant wine that has plenty of building tannins, ripe fruit, and a good finish.
