J. Lohr Cuvee Pom Red Wine 2015 Review

The name “Pom” is a nod to the merlot based wines on the right bank of the river in Bordeaux, and the wine has hints of this, but with much higher alcohol. The Bordeaux vibes come in waves of plush peppery fruit and some subtle tannic edges. But the core of the wine is all Central Cali, where the heat really ripened the hell out of these grapes, calling for a good amount of oak. The result is a bold red blend with good acidity and chocolate and plum aromas that would be a nice gift for full bodied wine lovers.
