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. - Steve Peck, red winemakerCOMPOSITION (BLEND):76% Cabernet Sauvignon8% Petite Sirah6% Merlot5% Petit Verdot2% Syrah1% Cabernet Franc2% other redFERMENTATION: Fermented in stainless steel tanks with peak temperatures reaching 92°FMALOLACTIC: ML fermentation completed in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels, using Viniflora OenosMATURATION: 12 months aging in 60 gallon oak barrelsBARREL TYPE: Primarily Missouri and Minnesota American oak with toasted headsPH: 3.7TOTAL ACIDITY: 0.62 g/100mlALCOHOL: 13.8% by volumeRESIDUAL SUGAR: 0.19 g/100ml
J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is intensely-colored with youthful and bright hues. An abundance of dark cherry, black currant and berry fruit greets the nose, enhanced by spicy cedar, vanilla 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.
The predominant fruit for the J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon comes from estate vineyards located directly opposite their J. Lohr Paso Robles Wine Center. The Seven Oaks vineyard was originally planted on its own rootstock, utilizing some of the original plantings from indigenous Estrella clones. The soils in their Paso Robles vineyards vary from gravelly clay loam to limestone-based soils over a relatively small parcel of land, and various rootstock and clonal combinations have been used to maximize the expression of each individual site. The different soil types and planting combinations add to and complement the palate of the Seven Oaks Cabernet and the other red varietals they produce--including Petit Verdot and Merlot--to add balance and weight to the wine.
