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

  • Bodega Sottano Merlot 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A beguiling nose of exotic woods comes down from these high-altitude vineyards (almost 4,000 feet), though thats the best moment, as aging hasnt created sufficient structure to exploit the mix of sweet and vegetal flavors. (AV 85, http://argovino.com/?p=282) Read More

(In other words, are people going to think that Argen... Read More

But since there was some Syrah talk going on I thought I'd start a new thread on Cool Climate Syrah.Tonight I'm visiting a wine I haven't had in since May and wanted to see how it is progressing.

    Wine review by navalent


  • I posted this question because someone on another thread referred to Merlots as "tannic" and I don't think of them that way.  But I also realize I am less sensitive to tannins than to, for example, acidity.  I have to stop and think about whether tannins are high or medium, although I can kind of quantify them if I stop and think.I think of tann...
