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

While Barbera is capable of producing some impressive wines it is also all too capable of producing pretty bad wines, both with capable winemaking and without. The problem lies with Barbera’s incredibly high natural acidity, and the issues th... Read More

    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
