Lohr J. Carol's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
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
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.
