J. Lohr Los Osos Merlot 2017
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
The J. Lohr Estates Los Osos Merlot presents mature red color with a raspberry hue. Brambly fruit aromas of plum and pomegranate are integrated with a barrel signature of mocha and baking spice. Whole berry fermentation with a generous use of Malbec in the blend accentuates bright fruit tones on the palate, and leaves a lengthy finish.
This is a solid choice for midweek enjoyment. Generous aromas of ripe fresh red fruits meet with crushed slate, gravel and a kiss of sweet oak on the nose. It's lively on the palate, where juicy red cherry and oak framed by a spicy acidity.
Juicy, redolent of chocolate-covered cherry flavors. The spicy finish is filled with cedary overtones. Drink now.
