J.Lohr Cuvee P A U Paso Robles 2006 Red Wine

J.Lohr Cuvee P A U Paso Robles 2006 Red Wine, $18.69-$49.99 (Power buy), 90 points, borders on elegant, and for the $18.69 is a good deal, but falls short of a $50 red wine, in my opinion.
The color is Burgundy with a clear rim, and the aroma is a beautiful array of cooking spice, cedar, violets, and Autumn leaves.
A medium-plus body carries good acidity, tart red cherry and violets, with noticeably firm tannin that continues through the spicy finish.

  1. Seems rather lacking in the "wow!" department for something that normally retails for $50. For that kind of cash, I want to see rainbows and unicorns.

    Any idea what the blend is on this one?

    1. The J.Lohr red wine (P A U) is an attempt to recreate true French (Pauillac) red wine, but I'm not able to say they have or haven't done that: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.
