9 Great Cabs to Try Now

A look at wines from 2007

2007 J. Lohr Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon Hilltop, 14.9%

Layered sweet toasty oak and black cherry fruit greet the nose with a touch of mocha adding an accent. Rich and fruity with some nice tannins serving to pin down the slightly soft mass of black fruit on the palate. There’s an attractive herbal edge to the black currant fruit and while this is fairly fruit-driven today, I would drink it over the near term since the tannins seems rather stiff under the fruit. Rather mocha and cocoa-toned on the finish, which reveals a fairly pronounced vein of acidity and drying tannins, along with a little heat. Big wine, a bit clumsy, with a weirdly sticky finish. 86pts

    I love the Château Edmus Saint-Émilion Grand Cru! Just tried it a few months ago and gave it two #WKBadges:

    It's 85% Merlot and 15% Cab Franc and now Cab Sauv, however.
