J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
The 2016 J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and dense to the rim of the glass. Layered aromas of black currant, blueberry and cherry are accentuated by an authentic barrel bouquet of hazelnut, cocoa powder, and dark roasted coffee. High-toned red berry fruit strikes the fore-palate, and follows with bright acidity and a full structure that is both dense and soft at once.
Wine EnthusiastBlack cherry, smoke and a hint of caramel make for a very familiar and satisfying nose on this well-priced bottling. There is a deep core of black currant fruit, with chalky tannins, a dense mouthfeel and abundant acidity that drives into the finish.
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Seven Oaks offers up attractive aromas of ripe berry fruit, dark chocolate and subtle new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and open-knit, with an ample and generous core of sweet fruit taking center stage, framed by light structuring tannins. It's an accessible, user-friendly Cabernet Sauvignon that's best drunk in its youth.
