“Careful monitoring of grapevines – including the decision to cease irrigation for a full two months following a very wet winter – enabled J. Lohr to produce an exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon in a truly challenging vintage for California. Opaque purple/plum in hue, the wine exudes jammy blueberry and boysenberry fruit, accented by dark chocolate and roast coffee notes. Soft and opulent in the mouth, with very fine tannins. The rich, dark berry fruit dominates and delights from first sip to last savory swallow.”

2013
“As we complete our fortieth year of existence and head into the next forty, it is fitting that this year has seen some of the finest wines yet produced in California. This Issue not only brings the seasonal releases of Cabernet Sauvignon front and center but also reviews and recommends our favorite wines of the year. This is the season for celebration and everything about this Issue joins in the party. Our annual look at the best bubblies from Champagne adds to our coverage of California’s ever-improving sparkling wines, and whether one is looking for an everyday, reasonably priced bottling, which means, in our humble opinion, turning first to California, or wants the best available, you will find plenty of bubbles from both sides of the Atlantic to make you happy with the fizz.

Year In Review this year breaks new ground of sorts. Not only do we commend Sauvignon Blanc, of the 2012 vintage, to you as one of the year’s most exciting tasting surprises, but we have chosen and heartily call your attention to our Winery Of The Year: Daou Vineyards & Winery from Paso Robles. It is too easy to dismiss Paso Robles as the home of wines whose ripeness has gotten ahead of their fruit. Daou is proving otherwise, and it is joined by both established wineries like J. Lohr and Adelaida and newcomers like Proulx, Epoch, Law and Hammersky in writing a new and exciting chapter in the evolution of wines from that area.”

“Generously fruited and on the clear varietal track with elements of olive-tinged currants backed up by a complementary dollop of sweet oak, this supple, tannin-firmed offering conveys plenty of substance and depth without a great deal of the toughness that can attend young Cabernet. It is nonetheless balanced in a way that suggests good mid-term potential, and we would opt for a few years of age before drinking.”

“What to Drink with Chocolate Cake?”
“Matchups: A dark-fruited red”
“A concentrated red wine with velvety texture, oaky spice, and dark-berry fruit meshes with chocolate’s mocha flavors. Rich, lush cabernet sauvignon from warmer climates such as California and Australia goes will with chocolate (especially dark). Cabernet’s cassis-tinged fruit also loves chocolate’s toastiness.”

“Next Generation California”
“This selection was intended to give us a glimpse of the work of the current, younger generation (most but not all are the winemakers) of well-established family businesses, such as Karl Wente, or young producers who have recently started out, such as Jamie Kutch, whose wines I had been lucky enough to taste in London earlier this year and whom Alder mentions in The new name in cool for California Pinot Noir. An inspiring tasting was followed by a lunch made from the most flavoursome local ingredients we enjoyed during the entire week.”

“Pure Cabernet nose then riper and more grainy on the palate than I expected. Ripe but not overly sweet. Dense, firm and long but more classically Cabernet on the nose than on the palate. Drink 2014-2020”

“PVA Values – The Winners: The 20 best values of the year as determined by you, our readers!”
“Snooth's 2013 People's Voice Awards have come to a close and now it's time to roll out the winners. Over the coming weeks we'll be breaking things down for you, celebrating our winning finalists, and adding in a few editors picks to round out our list to include 100 great wines you should try in the coming year.

Today we begin with our value wines that are roughly under $15 a bottle, with most coming in within the $10 to $12 range. Not surprisingly these are mostly large brands with excellent availability. As we move up the price ladder we will of course see the mix of wines skew more towards the esoteric.

We congratulate all the winners and thank all of you who participated in the 2013 PVA!”
#1 – 2011 J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon
“The Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is red-purple in color with a bright hue at release. Ripe fruit aromas of black plum, blueberry and cherry mix with a bouquet of toasted pastry, anise, and vanilla from a year of barrel aging. Mature and round on the palate, the cool 2011 vintage has a high toned fruit signature and soft finish.” – Steve Peck, Red Winemaker

“Cabernets that Captivate”
“For this issue, we asked members of the Cheers National Wine Panel to recommend some cabernet sauvignon. As always, these selections include brief tasting notes, a rating and the wine’s retail price (which varies from store to store and market to market).”
