This luxurious 2016 J. Lohr Cuvée PAU displays concentrated aromas of black currant and black cherry along with oak-inspired notes of anise, cedar and cigar box. Classic and oily on the palate, leaving cherry, plum, and granite on the finish. Open and decant an hour before serving for full expression. Delicious with grilled rosemary lamb chops, garlic mashed potatoes and roasted beets.

This is a dense and detailed wine, starting with rich, inviting aromas of dark berries, cherries, cocoa, vanilla and mocha on the nose. Those lavish tones carry to the palate, which is framed by chiseled tannins. But the most intriguing aspects are the wild array of oregano and dried herbs that decorate the blackberry-jam and cherry-juice core.

The 2016 Cuvee PAU is the Left Bank Bordeaux-styled release, and it's a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Cabernet Franc, 13% Petit Verdot, and the rest Malbec, aged 18 months in barrels. Deep purple-colored, this medium-bodied, concentrated, nicely balanced effort has lots of classic Cabernet currant fruits as well as notes of lead pencil, dried earth, chocolate, and leather. It's a solid, textured, balanced Bordeaux blend that will keep for a decade.
