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.

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

Tasting Notes:

Touching Lives, One Toast at a Time In 2009, we set out to provide 500 mammograms for women in need by donating $2 from every bottle sold of our J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. With more than 2,500 mammograms funded to date, we have long surpassed our initial goal and need you to help us surpass the 3,000 mark by enjoying our wines, knowing that every bottle you and your loved ones purchase helps make a difference for those touched by cancer. As we partner again with NBCF for the fourth year in a row, we will continue to expand our efforts to raise money in support of early detection, which has been proven to save lives.
