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


    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
