J Lohr Valdigue Wildflower Gamay Usa 2009
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.

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.
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 little harsh and green, with mint,. black currant and cedar flavors that are dry and tannic. Good everyday Cab that will benefit from decanting.
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.
Here's a fine everyday Cabernet for drinking now with your favorite meat dish or cheese. It's soft and rich in berry, currant and spice flavors. Could be a little drier, but it sure is tasty.
Tiefe, dunkelrote Farbe mit Violetttönen. Intensive, elegante und weiche Aromen von Heidelbeeren, schwarzenKirschen und Cassis. Danach eine Mischung aus Vanille, Schokolade, Thymian und Zedernholz. Im Gaumen voll, weich und lieblich mit reifen Tanninen und langem Abgang.
One of the workhorses on the J. Lohr "farm," the Seven Oaks Cabernet is hugely successful in restaurants because of its accessible pricing and style. Its soft tannins, ripe fruit and slightly herbal edge go perfectly with grilled beef and lamb.
Food Pairings for J Lohr Valdigue Wildflower Gamay Usa
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. Produced as a blend in the Rhone style, with a bit of Syrah that adds spiciness - a welcome addition to this wine.</p>
