The 2005 J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most intensely-colored Estates Cabernets they have produced. The wine color has a deep, bright, red-purple hue. An abundance of dark cherry and black currant fruit greets the nose, enhanced by spicy clove and toasty notes. On the palate, the fruit follows through with full weight and a lingering intensity and balance from the tannins.
This wine is ready to be enjoyed now, or cellared for 5 years. Enjoy it with barbecued meats, tomato-based pastas like pasta all'amatriciana and chocolate decadence.
