Really full-bodied aroma with toasted oak, black pepper, chili powder, red and black fruit. An absolute pleasure to take in the nose. The attack is smooth and well balanced, with smoked meaty notes in the midpalate and hints of papaya and coconut on the finish. I'll probably finish the bottle.

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.

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.

While yoursquo;re waiting for your huge Cabs to age, sustain yourself with this drinkable wine tonight. Itrsquo;s soft and gentle, with pretty flavors of blackberries, black cherries and coffee. Has an elegance that belies the affordable price.

Impeccably balanced, this sophisticated Cabernet explodes with hints of blueberry, cassis, leather, and spice that are well integrated into a tightly woven finish that is impressively long.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Tasting Notes:

Aromas of black currant, plum and black cherry, lifted by a bouquet of vanilla, toasted pastry and spice.

<p>This is a limited-release Mourvedre wine, grown on 10-year vines planted in the lime-shale hillside of Paso Robles, south-west facing. &nbsp;Produced as a blend in the Rhone style, with a bit of Syrah that adds spiciness - a welcome addition to this wine.</p>
