Wine Review: This medium ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from J. Lohr is a very good value wine. It opens with a mild black currant and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and rather smooth for a wine at this price point. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry with notes of gentle oak and cassis. I also detected hints of minerality and blackberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins linger nicely. This is definitely an above average, very affordable option. I would pair it with a juicy Kobe sliders. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: For an affordable wine that's available almost everywhere in the country, this bottling is hard to beat. The 2018 "Seven Oaks" Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and dense in color, showing a bright hue at release. Ripe fruit aromas of black cherry and currant are accented by notes of toasted pastry and dark roast coffee from the authentic barrel bouquet. Persistent high-toned red fruit strikes the palate, followed by bright acidity and a structure that is both dense and soft at once.
