Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a faint black currant bouquet with hints of black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty black currant and crushed stone minerality blend with notes of oak and chocolate. I also detected hints of black cherry. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins build-up nicely and last for quite a while. I would pair this Cab with a New York Strip steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2020 J. Lohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon displays trademark aromas of blackberry, black currant, and toasted pastry crust. Dense and soft on the palate. Elegant layers of black and red currants leave a bright finish, accented by spice and pastry notes from extended oak aging. Pair with a rosemary- seasoned ribeye and garlic roasted potatoes with parsnips and fennel.
