J. Lohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2018 750mL TPTasting Panel WEWine Enthusiast
The 2018 J. Lohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon is effusive with fresh varietal aromas of black cherry and hints of toasted pastry and baking spice on the nose. Dense and soft on the palate. Elegant layers of black and red currants leave a bright finish.
This wine is ddelicious with rosemary-seasoned ribeye and garlic roasted potatoes with parsnips and fennel.
This widely available bottling remains a very wise choice for the price point. Dark in the glass, it begins with cassis, pie crust and baking spice on the nose, yet there’s a savory black-olive touch as well. Firm yet polished tannins carry dark fruit, cocoa and light licorice through the dense palate. Editors’ Choice.
