Carol's Vineyard is named for Jerry Lohr's late wife and is blessed with climatic conditions and loam- and gravel-rich soils that are relatively similar to those found in Bordeaux. This makes the Paso-Robles-based Lohr family's Napa property particularly attractive to Cabernet Sauvignon. This Cab is always classically styled, with excellent character and a complex array of cassis and dark fruit tones. The 2013 will reflect the even greater concentration imparted upon the vintage by California's ongoing drought conditions. Cellar this for up to 5 years or enjoy with grilled beef or lamb.
Tasting Note: There is a healthy dose of 22% Petit Verdot in this bold, juicy wine, rich in wild raspberry and cassis aromas and flavors. Graphite and chocolate fill out the dense, integrated midpalate, complemented by tangy acidity that provides structure and a hint of grace. Score - 92. (Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, Feb. 1, 2017)
