What Possessed Us To Open Wine?

Good friends coming over for appetizers before we were headed to a Wine Making Class. We were just convinced that the wine at the class would be terrible, so we decided to cleanse our palates with a good Cabernet. And it was a good Cabernet, but we misjudged the Wine Making wine, which was also pretty good.

What Did The Label Want Us To Know?

J. Lohr Seven Oaks grapes are grown in the “Estrella Hills area of Paso Robles, one of only three appellations in California that produce world class Cabernet Sauvignon.’ They must be proud. When I read the word: applellations, of course, being from Tennessee I thought Appalachians, but never mind. They use the descriptors: cherry, blueberry, violets and vanilla. They suggest red meat. They also talk about their quality control and art of winemaking. It is a really good wine, so good for them.

What’s So Great About It?

Bruce said nice bouquet. David said that when he smelled it, he thought it was going to bite him at the end, but it was smooth. He liked the strong aroma. Margie thought it smelled good and was smooth. I thought it might be my favorite wine of the night.

Fantasy This Wine Engendered:

Should I have read this label before heading to a Wine Making Class, because it is pretty impressive. I’m guessing the fantasy is that I would be able to imitate this wine in my basement! I mean, you can buy some grapes from California to make your own wine from, but don’t you think that J. Lohr keeps the very best for his own wine? That’s okay, it’s a fantasy. So in my fantasy, I don’t have to make my own wine. J. Lohr just sends it to me often and for free because they like me! (huge fantasy)
