Dark in color with a bright hue. Layered aromas of cassis and black cherry are accented by an authentic barrel bouquet of hazelnut, cocoa, and toasted pastry. Sturdy tannins strike the palate and finish with the high-toned fruit signature that typifies the Paso Robles growing region.

The predominant fruit for our J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in our estate vineyards located directly opposite our J. Lohr Paso Robles Wine Center. The Seven Oaks vineyard was originally planted on its own rootstock, utilizing some of the original plantings from indigenous Estrella clones. The soils in our Paso Robles vineyards vary from gravelly clay loam to limestone-based soils over a relatively small parcel of land, and various rootstock and clonal combinations have been used to maximize the expression of each individual site. The different soil types and planting combinations add to the palate of the Seven Oaks Cabernet.
Balanced upon release, with adequate structure to hold five years or longer.
Sauteé some mushrooms and snack on a few bruschetta as you relax and barbeque a garlic infused tri-tip roast.
MICHELLE BALL, THE TASTING PANEL
“‘There are four words I use to describe Seven Oaks: dense, soft and never green,’ says Steve Peck, J. Lohr’s winemaker for red wines. Though Seven Oaks Estates is J. Lohr’s entry-level Cabernet, overdelivering in quality for price is always their primary goal. Aromas of roasted coffee, bacon and black currant. On the palate, plush red fruit with nice structure and acidity.”
