High Altitude

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. – Description from mriskic

  • Excellent adventure, v v.  The top pic, above, appears to be taken from a pretty high altitude.  Were you on a mountaintop?  A DeHavilland Beaver?Last week ago a couple coffee shop acqaintances took off on their mortorcyles for an Alaska adventure.  Craziness in my opinion, but I am looking forward to hearing their stories.  I think they have a ...

  • Wine is not the first pairing that comes to mind when you’re talking about Brazilian cuisine. Coffee, fruit drinks, cachaça, and beer are all more traditional and have longer histories with the food. Portugal has a long history of wine production, but the first settlers in the 1500s found the northern regions near the equator too hot and too wet... Read More

  • Hmmm. Shipping the grapes across a desert could explain the sweetness:  ... ... In that dry, semi-high altitude environment, not a lot of yeast thrives.  Shipping grapes across the desert isn't really hospitable for the vineyard yeast, either.  Frankly, the whole idea of a winery in Pahrump is pretty quixotic. I'm guessing that the winemaker ... Read More

  • Made a trip to Pahrump Nevada today to play a round of golf with my friends at Mountain Falls GC. Amazing course! Rated #1 in Nevada and the #7 public course in America. Who would have thought a course that nice could be located smack dab in the middle of basically no-mans land.Because the trip is 45 minutes from Vegas, I decided to visit the wi... Read More

Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

  • I began my wine journey mining for hidden gems in little known regions along the east coast of the United States. A common response to many of the wines I shared and wrote about back then went something like this; “What, they make wine there?” In fact, wine is produced in all 50 states, but many people can count on one hand the wines they have t...

  • One of Syrah’s problem with consumers has always been the savory nature of the wine that is often coupled with some aggressive tannins. The solution to both issues, if and when they are viewed as problems, has been to get Syrah so ripe that it is all about fruit, has minimal tannins, and at the same time low acidity and no real complexity. As a ... Read More

    Planted in 1999. 12 acres, planted to Syrah, grenache, and Mourvedre. First harvest of mourvedre this year. Northern end of the appellation at an altitude of 1000 feet. Comes from the ridges in the vineyards with shallowest soils and most limestone influence. All spontaneous fermentation. Limestone gives great ripeness, helps hold the acidity, ... Read More
