Wine maker notes
The majority of the grapes used to make this wine were sourced from Lodi and Clarksburg. The Lodi AVA is located in the Central Valley of California, at the northern edge of the San Joaquin Valley, east of the San Francisco Bay. Lodi wine country has a climate that is cooled by winds and fog from the San Francisco Bay. Due to a break in the Coastal Mountain Range to the west, Lodi vineyards enjoy a more moderate climate than those in the Central Valley. Lodi’s terrain is composed of well-drained, mineral-rich soils. These soils have the rare ability to produce excellent quality grapes at relatively high yields. The Clarksburg AVA is an up and coming wine region located in California’s Sacramento Delta. The area was quickly discovered by grape growers attracted by a microclimate which closely mirrored that of nearby Napa Valley. The soils here are a combination of poorly-draining clay and rich loam, meaning the vines experience nutrient-rich, yet sometimes arid, conditions. During the growing season, warm days give way to cooling afternoon breezes from the San Francisco Bay, dropping temperatures down 30 to 40 degrees from their daytime highs. This mass of cool air allows wine grapes to retain more acidity than those grown in similarly warm regions.
