Lohr J. Carol's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

2009 J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is classically dark in color with a bright hue. Aromas of currant, cherry and black plum are complemented by a striking bouquet of roasted hazelnut and espresso. The entry is fruit-driven and supple, while the finish shows a respectful integration of fruit and oak components from traditional French oak barrel aging. Petit Verdot brings blue fruit, anise and violet notes to classic Cabernet structure. —Steve Peck, red winemaker

Founded in 1972, J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines crafts an array of acclaimed wines from estate vineyards in Monterey County, Paso Robles and Napa Valley. From this world-class palette of fruit, J. Lohr produces three tiers of award-winning wines – J. Lohr Estates, J. Lohr Vineyard Series and J. Lohr Cuvée Series. Selecting Monterey County’s Arroyo Seco appellation for his original vineyard, Jerry planted his first 280 acres of grapes beginning in 1972. Ideally suited for cool-climate winegrowing, these vineyards have become an acclaimed source for outstanding Chardonnay, Riesling, Valdiguié and Pinot Noir. At the heart of J. Lohr’s renowned red wine program are its 2,000 acres of estate vineyards in Paso Robles. Featuring warm, sunny days, cool nights and diverse soils, these vineyards have proven ideal for cultivating a flavorful array of grapes including voluptuous and complex Bordeaux varietals of Cabernet, Merlot and Cabernet Franc along with Syrah and Zinfandel.

I enjoyed this with braised beef shank in a red wine based braising liquid with mushrooms and garlic. The wine a 2007 was a terrific complement that was mellow and easy drinking. The tannins were soft and there was a hint of smoke and spice.

Intensives, dunkles Rot mit Violettenreflexen. Bouquet nach dunklen Kirschen. Ein fruchtiger Wein mit Noten von Vanille und Röstaromen.
