2019 J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2019 J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is dense and dark at the core, with a brilliant garnet hue around the rim. Ripe fruit aromas of black cherry and currant are accented by notes of toasted pastry, hazelnut, and vanilla from our barrel aging program. Big, juicy red-fruit flavors infuse the palate while softly textured tannins lead to a long finish.

Vintage

Rainfall totals were higher than average in 2019. We normally see slightly later budbreak in wet years, which delays the bloom, veraison, and harvest stages for the entire vintages. This worked to our advantage in 2019. With adequate canopy and moisture to endure early summer heat spikes, our Cabernet Sauvignon was able to ripen well into the last weeks of October. This led to extraordinary fruit intensity and depth of color. Our proprietary fermentation methods extracted the full flavor of Cabernet with abundant pigment while twelve months of barrel aging contributed complexity and lovely pastry and baking spice aromas and flavors.

Vineyards

The predominant sources for our J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is our vineyard located directly opposite our J. Lohr Paso Robles Wine Center and two newer sites just to the north: the J. Lohr Sinclair and J. Lohr Jones Ranches. The soils in our vineyards vary from gravelly clay loam to limestone-based soils; various rootstock and clonal combinations have been used to maximize the expression of each individual site. The different soil types and planting combinations contribute to the layered complexity of our Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon.
