Pick a Number... 337 Cabernet Sauvignon

So, what’s with the numbers?

Not all Cabernet Sauvignon vines are created equal.Throughout centuries of cultivation Cabernet Sauvignon vines have experienced several natural genetic mutations, creating “clones” that are known for their specific traits.

The 337 Cabernet Sauvignon Clone, when grown in ideal conditions, produces a wine that is bold, but luscious, with notes of spice and dark berries. Supple tannins and a lack of vegetal flavors result in a moderately ‘softer’ wine than most other Cabernet Sauvignon clones can achieve.

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.
