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

  • 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.
