Very dark, red-purple in color with youthful hues, the 2006 J. Lohr Hilltop Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has bright enticing aromas of cherries and berries with a bouquet of anise, vanilla and toasted oak. The 2006 Hilltop is a complex wine with a supple, yet ample texture and balance, reminiscent of Bordeaux's finest Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines with the structure to age for 10 to 15 years.
"What a gigantic improvement J. Lohr has been making lately in its Cabernets and Bordeaux blends. This latest to come out is a single-vineyeard beauty, rich in tannic structure, with deep, complex flavors of blackberries, cocoa dust, cedar and Indian spices. Appeals now for sheer deliciousness."
