Wine Review: Here is another good value wine from J. Lohr. This rich purple wine has a mild fruit tinted bouquet. On the palate, this wine is well balanced, medium bodied, and tasty. This wine will serve you well with barbeque steak tips. The wine finishes very dry and a bit prolonged. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: The 2005 J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most intensely-colored Estates Cabernets we’ve produced during my tenure. The wine color has a deep, bright, red-purple hue. An abundance of dark cherry and black currant fruit greets the nose, enhanced by spicy clove and toasty notes. On the palate, the fruit follows through with full weight and a lingering intensity and balance from the tannins. This wine is ready to be enjoyed now, or cellared for 5 years. Enjoy it with your favorite barbecued meats, tomato-based pastas and chocolate decadence.
