J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|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.
For an affordable wine that's available almost everywhere in the country, this bottling is hard to beat. Fresh aromas of black currant, elderberry, lilac, pepper and charcoal lead into a rich palate of cassis, oak and charred beef, all lifted by herbs and peppercorns.
