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

  • 337 Cabernet Sauvignon Lodi 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Quite the complex nose for a wine of this price point- cassis, cranberry, chocolate, a bit of a vegetal note, and a touch of heat at the end. Cassis, blackberry and chocolate on the initial attack followed by a full midpalate, though the finish is a bit short and acidic. All in all one of the better supermarket wines at this price.

  • Hi everybody, this is my first post on SnoothI was wondering if anyone had an opinion on the effects of proximity to the ocean for changing characteristics of wine. Does it have similar effects, even in different parts of the world? For example, grapes grown from Sancerre to Muscadet in the Loire valley demonstrating similar changes to character... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    @chitownwineguy I like the drinkability and smooth tannins. Definitely doesn't have the concentration and is less serious, but a great mid-week wine for $13.00. Read More
