Winemaker Notes

The 2015 J. Lohr Hilltop is a great example of the J. Lohr house style of “dense but soft” Cabernet Sauvignon. Effusive blackberry and currant aromas are integrated with a bouquet of toasted hazelnut and cocoa powder from 18 months of French oak barrel age. Bright fruit on the mid-palate finishes clean and invigorates the appetite for an array of rich menu items.

Delicious with rosemary-seasoned ribeye, served with garlic roasted potatoes with parsnips and fennel.

Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot

Wine Enthusiast
This wine is bursting in lavish aromas of blueberry, black currant and fudge that lead into a palate full of mouthcoating tannins and solid acidity. Blackberry, black plum and dried herb flavors complete the picture.

Tasted as a barrel sample and a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon with Malbec and Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Hilltop offers a deep purple color as well as impressive notes of crème de cassis, licorice, lead pencil and tobacco leaf. Medium-bodied, charming, elegant and layered on the palate, with lots of fruit, it's a rock-solid Cabernet that has plenty to love.
Barrel Sample: 88-90

COMMENTARY: The J. Lohr Vineyard Series has always been one of this winery's most popular category. Wines, made from this tier, are often rich, yet smooth. The 2015 Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon certainly shows this pedigree. TASTING NOTES: This wine is rich, smooth and beautifully crafted. Its generous ripe fruit and oak accents prime it perfectly for a grilled ribeye. (Tasted: April 9, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Paso Robles Wine

Central Coast, California

View all products

Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, powerful, fruit-driven wines. But with eleven smaller sub-AVAs, there is actually quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

Just east over the Santa Lucia Mountains from the chilly Pacific Ocean, lie the coolest in the region: Adelaida, Templeton Gap and (Paso Robles) Willow Creek Districts, as well as York Mountain AVA and Santa Margarita Ranch. These all experience more ocean fog, wind and precipitation compared to the rest of the Paso sub-appellations. The San Miguel, (Paso Robles) Estrella, (Paso Robles) Geneso, (Paso Robles) Highlands, El Pomar and Creston Districts, along with San Juan Creek, are the hotter, more western appellations of the greater Paso Robles AVA.

This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Grenache and Rhône blends, both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruit-driven, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
