About This Wine:
California’s capital city is just that: a city. But venture a mere 20 minutes outside downtown (if traffic cooperates), and you’ll find yourself in an area that has been dubbed “The Gem of the Delta” — Clarksburg.
There, wide highways give way to country roads. High rises are replaced by beautiful country landscapes. And dotting that landscape along those roads are vineyard plots, where growers farm a number of grape varieties, including Sauvignon Blanc.
Bodega Mariposa crafts a textbook Sauvignon Blanc out of Clarksburg grapes. Its alluring, grassy aroma gives way to an array of fruit flavors, and the refreshing finish invites another sip… and another. Some opt to savor this wine as an aperitif. Others use it as an alternative to sparkling wine when noshing on sushi or a green salad. It’s a tasty treat from an under-the-radar wine region.
