Wine Review: Slightly cloudy dark Cabernet Sauvignon based blend from Paso opens with a fragrant and attractive boysenberry bouquet with a hint of kirsch. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, smooth and lush. The flavor profile is a very tasty boysenberry and black cherry blend with notes of fine grain minerality. I also detected hints of black pepper and oak mixed in. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins build-up and linger for quite some time. This wine certainly over-delivers. It would pair well with New York strip steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A milestone wine for J. Lohr that harnesses our history with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah from Paso Robles. Classic Cabernet Sauvignon with its savory notes are wrapped in the dark fruit character of Petite Sirah. Pairs well with tomato rice dishes like paella or creamy risotto. Exquisite with prime rib or a dense monkfish.
