J. Lohr Carol's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, St Helena|
Dense and compact, tight and concentrated, this offers loads of rich fruit, with tiers of dark berry, graphite, sage, cedar and crushed rock, ending a bit clipped. Best from 2020 through 2034. 2,341 cases made.
This blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Petit Verdot has a densely opaque purple color, wonderfully sweet cassis fruit, blackberries and a floral note as well as a full-bodied, concentrated mouthfeel. In short, this is unquestionably the finest wine I have ever tasted from J. Lohr, so kudos to them. Of course, they're not giving it away either, but this is worth every bit of its $60 price tag. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
