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

A bit minty on the nose with notes of root vegetables, radish, light red currant fruits, some angelica root and camphor, as well clay soil tones. Rather soft an entry but with a really nice medium-bodied feel. The fruit here is simple but fresh, with ripe red berries and a fine dried herb background note. Tannins are very well-managed, gliding beneath the fruit lending just a hint of austerity to the palate. The finish is very short with astringent soil tones. Easy drinking and simple. 86pts

Dunkles, jugendhaftes Rot. Intensives fast süssliches warmes Bouquet von Heidelbeeren, schwarzen Kirschen und Cassis. Im Gaumen ein Feuerwerk der Aromen, getragen von einer weichen Tanninstruktur. Er wirkt samtig, wuchtig und bestechend harmonisch. Einer der besten Cabernet Sauvignon überhaupt.

Winemaker Notes - Very dark, youthful red-purple in color, the 2004 vintage of J. Lohr Hilltop Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has elegant aromas of black cherries, blackberries and black currants, with a bouquet of mint and toasty oak. The 2004 Hilltop

Decanter magazine gave it Four Stars and said “aromas of black currant, black cherry, strawberry, integrated oak and flowers. Wonderful balance of grippy, juicy tannins and ripe fruit that is sleek, perky and fresh. Highly Recommended.” A Platinum Medal in Monterrey and God from the Dallas morning News are only a handful of the accolades this rich California Cab has received. Grown on some of the highest slopes in Paso Robles, it’s aged 18 months in Allier oak barrels.

Very dark, red-purple in color with youthful hues, the J. Lohr Hilltop Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has complex aromas of black cherries and blackberries with a bouquet of cedar, anise, licorice, tar and vanilla toasted oak.

Winemaker Notes - 2007 was a very dry year in Paso Robles, with the seasonal total for rainfall registering a scant 4.4 inches. Fortunately, temperatures were mild and did not exacerbate the extremely dry conditions. Vine canopies were small, as were cluster and berry size, resulting in some of the lowest yields we have seen in the last ten years. These natural limitations imposed on the vines resulted in remarkably good cabernet sauvignon fruit quality, with outstanding color and flavors. For the second consecutive year, we incurred no significant heat events after veraison and had very mild weather conditions straight through harvest, allowing each block to be picked at optimal flavor development.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Hilltop is dark colored with red-purple hues. Aromas of black plum, cherry and fresh fig are wrapped in a bouquet of roasted hazelnut, coconut and Italian espresso. This wine offers large palate volume in a very soft package with a supple finish. This new world wine showcases the best of the varietal fruit, with complexity and structure reminiscent of the finest of Bordeaux.
