Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Ever noticed how good things often come in threes? The 2013 vintage of Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon sits right in the middle of three great years for Paso Robles Cabernet and may be remembered as the best vintage since the revered 1997. Pre-season rainfall was just over half of normal following the two wet and cool vintages of 2010 and 2011. Growth started early in Cabernet with budbreak just after St. Patrick’s Day, and we saw a very warm month in April that pushed us into bloom early in May. The greatest differentiator of the vintage was that daytime high temperatures for the critical two-week period of veraison were 5 to 10 degrees cooler than normal. This allowed the berries to color up beautifully and led to some of the darkest wines we’ve seen in our cellar. Harvest was smooth sailing with most blocks being harvested the first three weeks of October. The 2013 vintage of Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon was “made in the vineyard” and brought to its fullest potential by aging a full year in our barrel cellars prior to bottling.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2013 Vintage) The 2013 J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is showing exceptionally dark color with a bright hue at release. Intense fruit aromas of black cherry, plum and blueberry are accented by a barrel bouquet of hazelnut, dark chocolate and toasted pastry. Sturdy tannins strike the palate and finish with the hightoned fruit signature that typifies the Paso Robles appellation. Pair with charbroiled beef tenderloin, grilled portabella mushrooms, or your favorite bruschetta recipe.
