Located near the cooling waterways of the Sacramento River Delta, Clarksburg is home to vineyards planted to dense clay and loam soils that receive fog and breezes from the San Francisco Bay. Microclimates here are similar to ones found in Napa and Sonoma to the west, and an open secret is that a number of high-profile wineries from these more prestigious regions purchase Clarksburg grapes (a common practice with less-famous appellations that have the quality but not the name recognition).
Lot 740 comes to us from a family estate that’s been farming the region for generations. Aged for two years in barrel and showing a striking classic character, this is a dead ringer for its pricier Italian siblings (you’d think it was an import if tasted blind), and a terrific American expression of one of Italy's finest grapes. Available here for half the winery price!
