J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Winemaker's Notes: The 2012 J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is red-purple in color with a bright hue at release. Fruit aromas are black cherry, plum and blueberry accented with a barrel bouquet of toasted pastry, dark caramel and vanilla. Sturdy tannins strike the palate and finish with the high-toned fruit signature typical of the Paso Robles appellation. Pair with braised shortribs, a rich beef tenderloin with gorgonzola butter or spicy fajitas.
This delicious bottle starts off with robust aromas of cherry, sweet oak and mint. Polished but firm tannins uphold dark fruit, baking spice and a pinch of peppery herbs on the well-rounded, satisfying palate.
Tilts toward the jammy side, with steeped plum and cherry sauce flavors, laced with a notable cocoa note. Soft finish. Drink now. 1,156,000 cases made.
