    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2006 J. Lohr Cuvée St. E is dark red-purple in color with aromas of black plum, blueberry and violet, with touches of chocolate, vanilla and toasted oak from twenty-one months aging in new French oak barrels. The wine displays the true varietal nature of Cabernet Franc, with fine-grained tannins and mid to rear structure from both the fruit and maturation time. Palate weight is quite dense due to the generous contribution of Cabernet Sauvignon in this year's blend. On release, this wine will already have one year bottle age but will develop additional complexity well into the future.  In its youth, Cuvée St. E should be enjoyed with pan-seared filet mignon, or ribeye steak with a berry-infused reduction sauce.  We recommend decanting one hour prior to serving.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark, rich and dramatically structured, with ultra-refined black and red currant, cherry, violet, cedar and smoke flavors that are grounded by a firm minerality. It’s a Bordeaux blend based on Cabernet Franc.
