Food Pairings for J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon
Great budget wine. Strong and dry with deep berry notes.
A multiple amount of fruit on the nose. I'm sure there was a hint of apple. On the palate very low key hints of berries and slight taste of oak which was not offensive. A medium body cab with mild tannins and not much of a finish. For this price point i believe it is a descent everyday cab.
Smooth wine and buttery. No very bold but a good wine.
Promising young Cabernet. It has classic youthful tannins with black currant, black cherry, and plum aromas and similar fruit taste structure. A hint of oak and vanilla. Should age well and reach its prime in a few years. P.S. A more recent tasting (August 2012) suggests that this wine is maturing nicely. It's more balanced, and the tannin structure is a little more complex as compared to a 2011 tasting.
My fav cab.
Sweet cab. But $44 at the Keg in Canada - oh to get US pricing here
External Reviews for J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
True to J Lohr's style, this wine has tons of oak and enough fruit to balance it nicely. Big and delicious, this wine needs to match with red meat to really shine.
Winemaker Notes - A particularly dense vintage, this wine is red-purple in color with a bright hue. Aromas of black currant, plum and black cherry are lifted by a bouquet of vanilla, toasted pastry and spice from a year of barrel aging. The palate is rife with primary fruit and a broad, rich tannin structure.
This flavorful, soft Cabernet should satisfy your guests, yet won't break the bank. It has pleasant flavors of black currants, cherries, sage, dill, tobacco, and smoky oak, and the tannins are firm and a little tea-like. Finishes with a ripe, fruity flourish.
Blackberry, plum and espresso flavors are tangy, with a hint of floral sweetness, with firm tannins and cedary oak lingering on an earthy finish. Drink now through 2008.
Aromas of black cherry, currants, blueberry, violets and jammy black fruits that extend into a complex bouquet of cedar, mocha, cigar box and black olives. The fruit shows ripe and ample tannins with a plump, concentrated structure supported with benevolent acidity.
A smooth, supple structure will overwhelm you at first taste. J. Lohr's Cabernet is full of rich cherry and blueberry flavors rounded out by a delicate oak balance.
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 like pasta allamatriciana and chocolate decadence.
