Winemaker's Notes:

The 2003 J. Lohr Carol's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has dark red color with excellent depth. The aroma is dominated by cherry and currant fruit with hints of vanilla and spice coming from the well-seasoned oak. On the palate, the fruit is again dominant from the front to rear palate. The tannins are soft, but complement the full palate and add substance to the finish and length of the wine.

The high ratio of Petit Verdot fruit enhances the wine's breadth but also ensures that it ages well for the next 15 years. In its youth, a braised meat dish will complement the wine's sweet fruit character, and it will pair equally well with your favorite steak.
