J. Lohr- Cabernet Sauvignon "Seven Oaks"
The predominant source for our J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is our estate vineyards located directly opposite our J. Lohr Paso Robles Wine Center and at two newer sites just to the north at the J. Lohr Sinclair and J. Lohr Jones Ranches. The Seven Oaks vineyard was initially planted on its own rootstock, utilizing some of the original plantings from indigenous Estrella clones widely planted in Paso Robles. The soils in our vineyards vary from gravelly clay loam to limestone-based soils over a relatively small parcel of land, and various rootstock and clonal combinations have been used to maximize the expression of each individual site. The different soil types and planting combinations add to the palate of Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon.
Nose: Aromas of black cherry, plum and blueberry.
Palate: Dark fruit, baking spice and a pinch of peppery herbs on the well-rounded, satisfying palate.
Finish: Sturdy tannins with a high-toned fruit finish signature of Paso Robles.
Food Pairing: Delicious paired with wild mushroom risotto or an herb-encrusted rack of lamb with creamy polenta.
