The 2015 J. Lohr Hilltop is a great example of the J. Lohr house style of “dense but soft” Cabernet Sauvignon. Effusive blackberry and currant aromas are integrated with a bouquet of toasted hazelnut and cocoa powder from 18 months of French oak barrel age. Bright fruit on the mid-palate finishes clean and invigorates the appetite for an array of rich menu items.  Delicious with rosemary-seasoned ribeye, served with garlic roasted potatoes with parsnips and fennel.  WINERY

This wine is bursting in lavish aromas of blueberry, black currant and fudge that lead into a palate full of mouthcoating tannins and solid acidity. Blackberry, black plum and dried herb flavors complete the picture.  WINE ENTHUSIAST

Tasted as a barrel sample and a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon with Malbec and Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Hilltop offers a deep purple color as well as impressive notes of crème de cassis, licorice, lead pencil and tobacco leaf. Medium-bodied, charming, elegant and layered on the palate, with lots of fruit, it's a rock-solid Cabernet that has plenty to love.   JEB DUNNUCK
