Natalie's Score: 90/100

Opens with seductive black fleshy plums, blackberries and blackcurrants wrapped in mocha and smoke. Full-bodied and smooth with terrific balance and mouth-watering action. Great for hearty meat dishes and when you want to be good to yourself.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: pepper steak, roast beef.

Candice Bougie rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

I adore this wine. As the vintage ages the full flavors come out. The best time to purchase the new vintage is June , best enjoyed at least 6 months later. The full flavors marry well and the sweetness of the cherries settle and the more subtle flavors of tobacco and oak appear lush and rest on your palate.
Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A great Cabernet Sauvignon with aromas of black currant, plum and black cherry. You have that yummy vanilla that comes from oak aging. Well structured with nice smooth tannins.
John rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Excellent with beef tenderloin
Heather Wall CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Almost 2007! Great year for J Lohr Cab. This vintage is getting close. Dark ruby red, this Cali classic has cassis, dark plum, cherry, oak and vanilla. Nice long finish and round tannins. Smooth going down. Perfect pairing for a sunset Barbeque. California dreaming...
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2010 J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon has intense aromas of toasted oak, vanillin, blackberry, strawberry and bilberry. It is a full bodied, dry, fruity to integrated wine, with good acidity, refined tannins (decant for 15 min) and a long, vanilla dominated finish. This is a party friendly wine that can also be enjoyed with sweet/acidic foods; drink now - 2018+. My impression: NICE, 89 pts - though not crafted but tailored, this is a consistent product from vintage to vintage. Tasted April/13.

Courtney Flood rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Very hedonistic wine. Deep purple-red colour. Very rich in black and red fruits; black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, plum, cassis with a sweet vanilla background and a little bit of sweedish berry. The longer the wine sat, the more sweet notes I got. I found it a little on the plush side. Would be balanced by a smoky and slightly spicy barbequed meat.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
