Tasting Panel Review
After Jerry Lohr's wife, Carol, passed away due to complications from breast cancer in 2008, Lohr and his children were inspired to partner with the National Breast Cancer Foundation; the resulting program, Touching Lives, promotes efforts around early breast cancer detection. Because the special vineyard this remarkable wine hails from was named for Carol (Lohr acquired the site in 1984), $3 from the sale of every bottle supports the initiative. Winemaker Steve Peck created a stunning, densely textured red with aromas of cigar leaf and black fruit that lead to a sumptuous mouthfeel. Coffee bean, violets, leather, and black cherry engage in a sensuous dance on the palate as slate and creamy plum accentuate its bold lines.
Dark in the glass, with dense color extending to the rim. The aroma projects red currant and cassis layered with cedar. Firm and medium weight on the mid- palate with flavors of black cherry, mocha, and granite.
92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot
