J. Lohr Hilltop Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
The 2008 Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon is dark-colored with red-purple hues. Aromas of black plum, violet and pomegranate are wrapped in a bouquet of hazelnut, coconut and Italian espresso. The large palate volume of this wine is surprisingly soft and round on the finish. A high fraction of Malbec brings brightness to this blend, whose complexity and structure is reminiscent of the finest of Bordeaux. This wine will age comfortably for 10 to 15 years.
External Reviews for J. Lohr Hilltop Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemakers Notes - A bouyant red-purple color with bright hues. Generous aromas of black cherry, black currant and plum fruit, complemented by vanilla, tar and toasty notes from the twelve to fourteen months in barrel. On the palate, the fruit flavors echo the aroma, complexed with blackberry and a plump, softly texture mouthfeel and finish.
