J. Lohr Los Osos Merlot 2009
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
The 2009 J. Lohr Estates Los Osos Merlot has a mature red color with a raspberry hue. Black cherry and pomegranate aromas are accentuated by the high fraction of Malbec in this year's blend. The toasty oak signature is reminiscent of hazelnut and dark chocolate. This soft red wine has a fine texture on the palate and finishes with a bright Rainier cherry fruit signature. This wine is an ideal pairing for seafood bisque or filet with wild mushrooms.
Lots of ripe blackberry and cherry jam flavors in this soft Merlot. It's really too sweet for comfort, but plenty of consumers will like it.
