Natalie's Score: 88/100

A full-bodied, single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon-driven red blend with a splash of Petit Verdot, juicy with blackberry jam, spice, meaty and mocha flavours that linger on the palate. Wine grapes are sourced from Carol's Vineyard and this wine commemorates the passing of Jerry Lohr's wife in 2008 due to complications from breast cancer. Today, $3 from every purchase of J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Since the program’s inception, sales from J. Lohr's Carol’s Vineyard releases have supported early breast cancer detection, access to mammograms, patient navigation systems and the delivery of HOPE Kits (a gift box of comforting items) to women undergoing breast cancer treatment. These programs continue to build on a partnership that has funded over 6,500 mammograms for women who otherwise would not be able to afford them.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: roast leg of lamb, beef enchiladas, barbecued ribs in sauce, hamburger, hard cheese.

From St. Helena, Napa Valley wine region, J. Lohr Carol's Vineyard 2016 is a full-bodied, rich and juicy Cabernet Sauvignon-driven red wine blend with a dollop of Petit Verdot. Powerful and elegant with dark berry, mocha, toasty oak spice and savoury flavours that linger on the palate. Tannins are supple. - Community Wine Reviews
