I like a lot of the wines coming out of J. Lohr. Great value for money. This wine is dark in color with a mild nose of dark berries. On the mid pallet the wine displays some black cherries to match the nose. On the finish the wine has some firm tannins, some alcohol, and even some acidity right out of the bottle. A little bit of breathing or ageing helped to ease this allow you to enjoy the fruit more. This is a lovely cab. I would give it an 89 or so. This wine is on a number of restaurant’s menus so if you can’t think of anything else to order this is not a bad choice.
