J. Lohr Cabernet Sauvignon Hilltop
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - This reliable bottling offers fudge, caramel, black cherry and oak on the ripe nose. Cola and sarsparilla meet with black-cherry foam on the palate, where creamy tannins and just enough acidity carry into the finish.
Vinous 89 points - Deep brilliant violet. Pungent aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice, toasty oak and tobacco. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and dark berry flavors that deepen slowly with air. Finishes chewy and taut, with gently gripping tannins and a touch of dark chocolate.
