Essential #7: J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon

It’s as much a tradition as your famous, secret tri-tip marinade recipe. Since 1987, the J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon has been a BBQ staple. It’s pure Paso Robles in a glass: lush aromas and flavors of black cherry, plum and blueberry with just the right touch of tannins and warm vanillin-oak. But don’t just take our word for it. Our 2014 vintage was rated “95 Points” and received a Gold Medal at the prestigious California State Fair Wine Competition. And Food & Wine Magazine put it on their “Top Ten Cabernet Values” list. For thirty years, we’ve been a proud, essential part of America’s BBQs.
