About This Wine:
Certain areas of Napa and Sonoma counties are among them, and the Clarksburg area has been statistically identified as comparable to those regions. Located adjacent to the Sacramento River, the Clarksburg AVA is profoundly defined by the maritime influence of the Sacramento Delta.
Cool evenings and warm days with limited summer fog enable Clarksburg’s farmers to grow a diverse portfolio of premium grapes that can be made into expressive and enjoyable wines. Less rainfall during critical growing stages ensures dependable quality, and less spring rainfall depletes the ground water faster, stressing vines earlier to create more flavor.
There’s an abundance of flavor in the 2019 Ashfield Cellars Pinot Noir, ranging from fruit impressions to spicy oak, and from savory notes to a hint of sweet caramel. It’s a delicious elixir that should help put Clarksburg on the California wine map.
