A blast from the past....

2014 J. Lohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon....$27.99
"A blast from the past:   As we celebrate our 35th Anniversary this year our wine buyers and purveyors (many of whom are former employees) have been reminiscing about the "wines that got us into wine" enter the 2014 J. Lohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon.  I remember tasting the 1996 Hilltop during my first holiday season here at The Wine and Cheese Place wanting to buy an "expensive bottle", $19.99 at the time to share with my parents. We liked it so much we bought a case, now 18 years later the 2014 J. Lohr Hilltop and is every bit as good as we all remember the 1996 to be." -- Aaron, The Wine and Cheese Place

Also some press...
This appealing wine is widely available. Blueberry, vanilla cream and gingerbread make for an inviting nose. The palate packs layers of intriguing, ripe and easily lovable flavors: baked strawberries, vanilla ice cream, blueberry sauce and baking spice.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Enthusiast
