J. Lohr Signature Cabernet Sauvignon was first produced to honor the 80th birthday of founder Jerry Lohr. This limited release was specially selected and blended from the excellent 2015 vintage in Paso Robles. It is both a tribute to Jerry's pioneering efforts in the region and our red wine portfolio's ultimate expression of Cabernet Sauvignon.
J. Lohr Signature Cabernet Sauvignon, Californië, USA
Beck Vineyard, in the Creston District of Paso Robles, is a unique site. It sits at 1,700 feet above the early morning fog. Its calcareous soils and cooling afternoon winds are perfect for growing Cabernet Sauvignon.
The hand-harvested grapes were held separate at harvest and berry-sorted into six-ton open top tanks for fermentation. Maceration took place on the skins for five days, before early pressing to limit tannin extraction.
Aged 20 months in 100% new French oak from coopers Demptos, Vallaurine, Dargaud et Jaegle, and Saint Martin.
89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec
Geur & Smaak
Wine Enthusiast: The nose on this luxury-level bottling is pure and refreshing, offering aromas of black cherry, loamy soil, dried mint and caramellaced coffee. The palate is framed by upright tannins, yet is soft enough to enjoy now, showing deep flavors of black currant, dried herb, milk chocolate and toffee.
Veelzijdig inzetbaar. Onder andere bij Italiaanse klassiekers zoals lasagne, pizza uit de houtoven en gegrild rood vlees.
