J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
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.
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.
Great budget wine. Strong and dry with deep berry notes.
Great wine. Full-body with all kinds of flavors. Great strong finish.
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.
External Reviews for J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon
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 bursting with primary fruit and a broad, rich tannin structure. - Jeff Meier, winemaker
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.
Raisin, plum and cherry notes have good depth and are framed by a ripe tannic structure. Good value. Drink now through 2004.
Dark ruby red in color, with aromas of cherry, black currant, blueberry and violets. The bouquet is an elegant blend of vanilla, chocolate, truffle, cedar and thyme. It shows ripe, velvety, soft tannins with a plump structure supported by good acidity.
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.
Dark ruby red in color, with aromas of blueberry, black cherry and cassis and a hint of violets. The bouquet is an elegant blend of vanilla, chocolate, tobacco leaf and tar. It shows ripe and velvety soft tannins and a plump structure supported by good acidity, It would complement grilled or roasted red meats and red-sauced pasta dishes and will develop additional complexity with bottle aging.
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.

<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. Produced as a blend in the Rhone style, with a bit of Syrah that adds spiciness - a welcome addition to this wine.</p>
