J. Lohr Vineyard and Wines 2008 Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon - 89pts
Availability: Widely available at BCLDB stores
Date Tasted: January 11th, 2011
Tasting Notes: The J. Lohr Seven Oaks is one of the top two selling Californian Cabernet Sauvignon yearly in the BC market for good reason. It offers good quality with classic California Cab characters of concentrated dark fruits and sweet, warm aromas at a reasonable price. Not cheap mind you, but very reasonable for what you get.
Blended with small amounts of Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot and Merlot to add complexity and depth, this tasty wine walks the precocious line of elegance and approachability effortlessly. Released when ready, it can be enjoyed immediately. Drink 2011-2014.
