Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: September 11, July 26, September 12 and March 7. J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 Wine Review
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. This J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 was reviewed by March 7, 2013 Natalie MacLean

Darlene Myers 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.
Heather Wall 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 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.
