337 Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 Lodi California
This Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon shows masculine aromas of coffee, cassis and chocolate while on the palate powerful, resinous flavors of black cherries and an a hint of black pepper. I paired this with a whole wheat pasta with steak, and broccoli in a pesto sauce. 14.5% alcohol, and retails for about $14 at The Wine Room of Forest Hills.
Named for the French vine clone, 337 is an alluring expression of a California Cab 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 is big and bold, but luscious.
