J. Lohr Vineyard Series
Vineyard-driven. Passionately Made.
Also limited in production and finessed with meticulously-executed artisan winemaking techniques, wines from J. Lohr Vineyards Series showcase the highest-caliber fruit from small vineyard enclaves nestled in the world-class winegrowing regions of Paso Robles, Monterey County’s Arroyo Seco, and St. Helena, Napa Valley. Each parcel of land is the winemaker’s playground, where the most suitable grape variety is chosen to showcase its unique growing environment, then is lavished with constant attention.
Known for its extreme growing conditions, Paso Robles is one of three California appellations producing Cabernet and Petite Sirah worthy of international acclaim. Fifty-degree temperature swings between dawn and afternoon combined with scant moisture ensure fruit concentration, and deep, supple and sumptuous flavors. To lovers of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Monterey County’s Arroyo Seco region is utopia. Its rare confluence of soil and cool climate conditions work in harmony to create tremendous fruit intensity. And reminiscent of Bordeaux, the gravelly loam soils of 34-acre Carol’s Vineyard in northern St. Helena, Napa Valley, offer superb growing conditions for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Here, Cabernet is defined by deep black cherry aromas and flavors and offers a varietal expression different from the velvety dark berry and cherry flavors of Hilltop Cabernet, from our highest and best-drained slopes among our Paso Robles holdings.
