Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark, brick-red color with purple hues and good density. Once again, the lovely cherry fruit aromas of Cabernet from ‘Paso' shine through with hints of licorice and marzipan, complemented by spicy, vanilla oak. On the palate, the bright cherry pie fruit dominates with blueberry/currant flavors in the background. Underlying the fruit is a full to mid-palate weight, with the soft texture of the tannins carrying through into a long and lingering finish. I will be enjoying my Seven Oaks Cabernet with some sausage and mushroom pizza this evening; it also pairs beautifully with most game, red meat or tomato-based dishes.
