About This Wine:
The variety “shows” differently in different regions of the state, with the fruit flavors in the warmer areas being quite distinct from those in the state’s cooler regions. Typically, one or two fruit impressions, at most, come through in a wine’s aroma and flavor profile.
But when a true “California cuvee” concept is embraced — sourcing grapes from vineyards up and down the Golden State — a much more complex wine can be crafted, with multiple fruit flavors emerging in the glass. And that’s the approach taken by the vintner for Bodega Mariposa Cellars.
The 2021 vintage is enticingly floral in aroma, with a solid mineral-like framework in the mouth. That’s where the fruit impressions emerge, and the wine’s perfect balance makes it not only delicious, but exceptionally refreshing. Sip it solo with a good book or your favorite TV show, or enjoy it with your favorite salad mix.
