2008 J Lohr Los Osos Paso Robles Merlot CA 13.5% $12

Lots of wood on the nose, this is spicy and toasty over a base of mocha-infused black cherry and sour plum fruit that has a musky accent. Rich and a little sweet on entry, though with plenty of acid to help keep this fresh. It's not that well balanced- the acid is disjointed and the flavors are a touch heavy and dull, with dried fruit and intense carob qualities. This finishes nicely, more red fruited with the sweetness well balanced by the ample if polished tannins. A bit rustic, but rich and fruity. 85pts
