J. Lohr Paso Robles Merlot 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
The 2017 J. Lohr Estates Los Osos Merlot is medium-dark in color with a mature red hue. Varietal aromas of black plum and violet meld with a barrel signature of hazelnut and brown baking spices, while the generous fraction of Malbec in the blend accentuates bright fruit tones and contributes a note of hibiscus flower. Firm tannins and lively acidity cascade to a lengthy red-fruit finish. Delicious with summer grilled sausages or herb-roasted chicken.
This is a clean and well-rounded wine that's affordably ideal for everyday sipping at the dinner table. Aromas of red cherry and oak lead into a palate that is framed by firm tannins and full of black cherry foam, caramel and cocoa flavors.
Cinnamon and cardamom accents score the ripe dark cherry and plum paste flavors. Hints of hot spice appear on the finish. Drink now. 99,769 cases made.
