337 Cabernet Sauvignon Lodi 2008
Named for the French vine clone, 337 is an alluring expression of a California Cabernet Sauvignon with prestigious Bordeaux roots. The vines are cultivated for structure and flavor in the cobblestones of Lodi’s Clay Station Vineyard, making a wine that exudes seductive aromas of mocha and dark cherry. An explosion of spice and blackberry unwinds to a velvety, luscious finish.
Quite the complex nose for a wine of this price point- cassis, cranberry, chocolate, a bit of a vegetal note, and a touch of heat at the end. Cassis, blackberry and chocolate on the initial attack followed by a full midpalate, though the finish is a bit short and acidic. All in all one of the better supermarket wines at this price.
Smooth berry chocolate taste.
@chitownwineguy I like the drinkability and smooth tannins. Definitely doesn't have the concentration and is less serious, but a great mid-week wine for $13.00.

External Reviews for 337 Cabernet Sauvignon Lodi
Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. The typically attractive Lodi-area red comes with a pleasant voluptuousness born of high ripeness and pretty good concentration underlain by a supple underbelly. Not so here. This wine has the ripeness, but it is thin in fruit and pinched and sour in taste.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
337 delivers concentrated flavors that ignite the senses. The 337 clone is an early ripening grape with small berry clusters that deliver a bold, but luscious wine with spice and blackberry. The 337
