Very dark, red-purple in color with youthful hues, the 2006 J. Lohr Hilltop Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has bright enticing aromas of cherries and berries with a bouquet of anise, vanilla and toasted oak. The 2006 Hilltop is a complex wine with a supple, yet ample texture and balance, reminiscent of Bordeauxs finest Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines with the structure to age for 10 to 15 years.

Region Description

(cab er nay saw vee nyon)—This highly adaptable grape grows almost anywhere it is relatively warm, but the best wines come from the Burgundy region of France (where it is a noble variety), California, and Australia. It became famous through the red wines of the Médoc district of Bordeaux and is now grown in Washington, southern France, Italy, Australia, South Africa, Chile, and Argentina. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes make wines that are high in tannin and medium- to full-bodied. Usually identified as having black currant or cassis flavors, the grape can also possess vegetal tones when the grapes are less than ideally ripe. The best wines are rich and firm with great depth, and are often aged for fifteen years or more. Because it is highly tannic, Cabernet Sauvignon is often blended with other less-tannic grapes such as Merlot.
