The 2015 J. Lohr Cuvée St. E captures the ripe but savory side of the Bordeaux varieties. This wine is dark in color with a bright garnet hue. Aromas of red currant, coffee bean and dark chocolate lead to a palate of ripe plum and cassis. Tightly wound tannins are typical in Cabernet Franc and present the greatest reward after a few years of bottle age.
A perfect pairing for filet mignon with a shallot cream sauce or Osso Bucco (braised veal shanks) over a bed of polenta.
This homage Saint-Émilion shows rich aromas of black currant, toast and roasted wood on the nose. It’s concentrated on the palate, carrying mouthfilling flavors of cassis, peppercorn, cocoa, espresso and herbs, all wrapped in smooth tannins.
