Description

Back in the late 1960s and early 1970s, most quality winemakers in California paid little attention to the state’s Central Coast, preferring to focus their efforts instead on warmer and more fashionable spots. Not Jerry Lohr. Armed with an instinctive feel for climate, soil and location forged in his upbringing on a South Dakota farm, Jerry turned away from the crowd, and towards Monterey.
Since planting those first vines in Arroyo Seco more than 40 years ago, J. Lohr has become a flag-bearer for some of the most dynamic emerging Californian wine regions: wind-whipped Monterey for cool-climate Chardonnay, and, in the mid-1980s, the warmer inland area of Paso Robles for richer reds, including Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

A very youthful straw yellow color. The aromas are of ripe bosc pear, fuji apple, lime and honeysuckle combined with the perfumed vanilla and a toasty oak bouquet. The flavors are very clean with ripe pear, subtle floral notes and vanilla toastiness, producing layers of complexity with an excellent balance of fresh fruit acidity and palate-weight.
