California Cabernet Sauvignon Reviews

Score: 91 | December 4, 2020 | The Toronto Star

But just as delicious and seven dollars less is the 2018 Joliesse Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon from California (Vintages 16564, $17). So, if you’re a J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet fan, this wine is worth grabbing. About 2,000 cases of this wine were released Oct. 31, so there’s still some around, and it’s a lovely bottle. Expect heady scents of blackcurrant liqueur, blackberry cobbler and melting dark chocolate that lead to a lush, saturated entry. Swirling flavours of black cherries and cream, chocolate and cedar, and a touch of black coffee on the finish balance lively fruit with a touch of tension. An easy-drinking Californian that’s sure to please. Pour a glass of this with your favourite takeout cheeseburger for immediate pleasure.
