2006 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon - Rated Excellent
We don't make wimpy wines here at '37 Cellars; we don't like them, we don't drink them, and we certainly don't make them.
Our 2012 Pepper Bridge vineyards based Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception to our rule. This wine stands tall in both the flavor and the aroma aisles. But, better still, the aromas and flavors blend beautifully to present to you a Bordeaux wine as it is intended to be: a wine you can drink now, immediately after release, and for years later as it cellars.
This is a complex wine, solidly structured showing early, fresh fruits of blackberry and dark, Italian plum; interestingly too, in this 2012 we detect delightful herbal notes and hints of leather.
Remember too, this is a big, broad shouldered wine; it's drinking well now, but we expect it will continue to develop for ten year, perhaps even longer.
Drink and enjoy this wine with simple foods, grilled steaks, simple hamburgers, or a roast beef with a simple au jus. Now, but best in 2018, however lasting through 2026, perhaps 5 years longer.

2013 Merlot from Pepper Bridge and Bacchus Vineyards
We strive for two things here at the winery: we demand quality of our
selves to create the best wine possible from the fruit we are lucky enough
procure, and we strive for consistency in both the grapes we secure and the
wines we create. We felt we achieved our goals with this Merlot. Typically,
Merlot grapes produce a red wine with flavors and aromas of black cherry,
berries, plums; our 2013 contains all of these characteristics. But we've
also the added qualities of our oak cooperage to both the aromas and the
flavors, so expect hints of leather and herbs and, at least for one of us,
some lightly toasted oak qualities.
Drink now thru 2020, best around 2018 t0 2020.

This wine stands tall in flavors and aromas which blend beautifully to present a Bordeaux-style wine as it is intended to be: a wine you can drink now, after release, and years later as cellaring and age tame those young tannins. Complex and solidly structured, it shows fresh fruits of blackberry and dark Italian plum, accompanied by herbal notes and hints of leather. This is a big, broad shouldered wine, drinking well now, but we expect it will continue to develop for ten years or longer.

2015 Willamette Valley Chardonnay
Most of the world recognizes Oregon's Willamette Valley as a producer of
premium wines made from the Pinot Noir grape. Not as well known is the
Chardonnay which thrives there, and is made into excellent wine.
Our 2015 Chardonnay, made from that Willamette Valley fruit, tells its own story. It will speak to you with its aromas when you uncork it, will murmur in the mouth from first sip. This wine is rich with crisp, bright acids and fresh fruits: green apple with hints of pineapple on the nose and on the palate. Having been made in stainless steel tanks, it has none of the heavy notes of oak and honey which disguise the true flavors of the Chardonnay grape.
This one is best drunk young, sometime between now and 2018, but it will linger till around 2020. Serve it chilled - around 50'; it loves fish, shrimp, shell fish, crab and lobster, almost in any recipe that's citrusy. The wine has enough body and structure to stand tall with grilled chicken for that summer picnic.
