Wine Review: J. LOHR 2007 Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine has a deep garnet color. The nose has aromas of dark fruit, primarily dark plums and cherries, along with hints of coffee and spice. The palate's flavors mirror those of the nose. The wine has a lovely smooth mouth feel with soft tannins.  This wine's profile makes it a great wine to sip alone or to pair with food. The finish has a nice length, and the wine is well balanced.

 I would pair this wine with a rib eye steak or gourmet burger. Cahill Porter cheese would also make a great pairing with this wine.  Note: This wine was a sample provided by J. LOHR Vineyards & Wines SRP $35.00
