J. Lohr Gesture

A Unique Token of Thanks

Originally conceived as a token of appreciation for our loyal wine club members and visitors to our two tasting rooms, J. Lohr Gesture debuted in August 2009 as three limited-release, Rhône-inspired varietals and blends showcasing the distinctive microclimates of western Paso Robles. Gesture GSM boasts a high-toned fruit character from Grenache, with a bit of Syrah spiciness and a savory accent from Mourvèdre. Gesture Syrah leads with great color density, followed by a delicate oak signature and lingering minerality. Our Gesture Mourvèdre presents a violet hue and enticing aromas of lilac, anise and black pepper.

In recent years, our winemakers decided to broaden the Gesture offering to include additional varietals. A wine club favorite, Gesture Zinfandel is loaded with brambly raspberry and red plum aromas, balanced by its French oak barrel bouquet. Gesture Grenache Rosé was introduced and quickly became a staff favorite with its Asian Pear and strawberry notes, its bright fruit acidity, and refreshingly clean finish. Capitalizing on the delicate lilac, pear and beeswax aromas and plush, silky texture of Roussanne, we offer the unique Gesture RVG, complemented by delicate Viognier floral and citrus aromatics and finished with Grenache Blanc’s acidity and green apple fruit. Lastly, Gesture Viognier expresses effusive floral and citrus fruit with mouth-filling viscosity.

Each year, J. Lohr Gesture wines reflect the vineyard-driven inspiration of our winemakers, so be sure to order a coveted bottle (or two) of J. Lohr Gesture to enjoy with friends as a symbol of your gratitude—and ours.
