Our Ultimate Red Wine Release- J. Lohr Signature Debuts
San Jose, Calif. – January 10, 2017 – With the debut of “Signature,” J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines realizes a long held dream: to produce a Cabernet Sauvignon that ranks among the New World’s greatest, most collectable wines. Signature draws upon fruit from J. Lohr’s very best Paso Robles’ properties – the inaugural, 2013 vintage was released to coincide with founder Jerry Lohr’s 80th birthday.
For this first J. Lohr Signature release, Jerry, Jeff Meier and Steve Peck chose Cabernet Sauvignon fruit off the Beck Vineyard, in Paso Robles’ Creston District. For the final blend, Merlot from El Pomar and Petit Verdot from Carol’s Vineyard in Napa Valley were included for additional character and texture.
As Jerry Lohr comments, “My signature on the label indicates that this wine is a personal statement for me, looking to encompass three decades of experience and history in a single bottle.” Only 966 six-bottle cases of the 2013 Signature were produced.
