This robust Californian red wine from J. Lohr is the Seven Oaks label. Lots of dark chocolate and espresso on this robust Californian Cabernet that has been oak aged. Pair this Californian Cabernet Sauvignon with meat lovers' pizza. This is the half sized bottle which is great for nights on your own or when you want to start with a glass each and move on to something else with your dining companion. Great for the BBQ.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: beef, hamburgers, fajitas, lamburgers.

Reviews and Ratings

Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

I love the smaller bottle, which allows for a perfect 2-glass portion.
J.Lohr is a bit of a staple in my cellar - a perfect wine to crack open any night of the week, especially for those barbecue dinners.
Aromas of black plum, ripe black cherries, vanilla and a hint of eucalyptus, that carry through in flavour, with a smooth finish.
Drink now, or let rest for a few more years.
Tasted April 2017.
Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Faint bouquet at first. Suggest a decant to get some air flowing. I got cherry and vanilla on the nose. The wine is dark with long legs. On my palette, I got sour cherry, plum, with vanilla and spice (but not too much vanilla). The finish was complex, smooth and long.

At $22 for the 750ml, it may not be inexpensive enough to be a Tuesday-wine. I found it to be more of a "I’ve had a tough week and I deserve a $22-bottle" kind of Friday night wine. It also could be considered a "Mmm this is so smooth it tastes like juice and it’s a dangerous" kind of wine.

Sit back, sip. Reflect on what you accomplished and don’t think of what’s waiting for you on Monday.
From J. Lohr, this is the half-size bottle of Seven Oaks which is great for nights on your own. Finishes smooth, smoky, elegant and with soft tannins. Pair this Californian Cabernet Sauvignon with meat lovers' pizza. - Community Wine Reviews.
