J. Lohr Pure Paso 2019
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Savory varietal notes of Cabernet Sauvignon are layered with the overt dark fruit character of Petite Sirah. The bouquet of cocoa powder, caramel, and anise works in harmony with the black cherry fruit signature of this wine. Bright and focused on the palate with a firm and appetizing finish. Serve with Santa Maria-style grilled tri-tip seasoned with a simple garlic, salt, and pepper rub, along with grilled French bread, fresh salsa, and stewed pinquito beans for a classic coastal California feast.
J. Lohr is a leader in both quality and quantity for Paso Robles, crafting standard flavor sets and then sharing them with the masses. This Cabernet Sauvignon-Petite Sirah blend is a perfect example, starting with aromas of dried meat, cola, Dr Pepper and black cherry, The palate is accessible yet serious, blending roasted cherry and hickory-smoked meat flavors with chalky tannins and a cocoa-laced finish.
