    The Cen­tral Coast of Cal­i­for­ni­a’s benev­o­lent cli­mate push­es Sauvi­gnon Blanc away from grassy pep­pery notes to sweet­er mel­on and cit­rus fla­vors, as this ver­sion shows.”

    Ripe with black rasp­ber­ries, plums, crushed blue­ber­ries, and sweet spice on the nose, this is just as gen­er­ous when sipped, with café mocha and sweet spring­time flow­ers rip­pling through a plush yet vibrant palate of black­ber­ry flan and melt­ed choco­late. Excel­lent value!”

    2018 J. Lohr Cre­ston Vine­yard Mer­lot — The 13 Best New Mer­lots to Buy Right Now“
    Robb Report
    , March 8 2021
    From Paso Rob­les icon J. Lohr comes an ele­gant wine for the price. In gen­er­al­ly warm Paso, Cre­ston Vine­yard is a cool­er spot, and this vibrant Mer­lot is juicy with the acid­i­ty that fact allows. Del­i­cate flo­rals, graphite and wet stone open on the nose, joined by red cur­rant and black tea notes. Love­ly red fruit dances across the palate — black rasp­ber­ry and pome­gran­ate — with tan­nins that are sub­tle in their finesse.”

    2019 J. Lohr Estates Flume Cross­ing Sauvi­gnon Blanc
    KSRO, Decem­ber 2020
    Tom Simoneau’s Wines Of The Year 2020: Sauvi­gnon Blanc:
    The blend is entire­ly from the Sauvi­gnon Musque Clone picked over a month’s time at dif­fer­ent ripeness lev­els. Ear­ly picks give bright acid­i­ty and key lime fla­vors while more ripeness gives grape­fruit and pas­sion fruit. And the final pick achieves man­go and fig notes, com­plex and deli­cious. Anoth­er ter­rif­ic release from J. Lohr, one of California’s finest.”

    For the past 12 years, J. Lohr has donat­ed a por­tion of the pro­ceeds from every bot­tle of Car­ol’s Vine­yard Caber­net Sauvi­gnon to fund mam­mo­grams for women who would oth­er­wise be unable to afford them. This pro­gram is called Touch­ing Lives, and it has lived up to its name, pro­vid­ing more than 7,800 mam­mo­grams (and count­ing) to date.”

    Ripe and plush, with salt­ed caramel over­tones to the plum, cur­rant and black licorice fla­vors, with cocoa pow­der, tobac­co and a flo­ral detail on the suc­cu­lent and vel­vety fin­ish. Drink now through 2030.”

    Light yel­low col­or; attrac­tive, assertive, fra­grant, grassy, grape­fruit, mel­on, and trop­i­cal fruit aro­ma with hints of goose­ber­ry and hon­ey­suck­le: medi­um body; zesty, grassy, cit­rus, fig, and trop­i­cal fruit fla­vors with bright acid­i­ty and a touch of oak: lin­ger­ing after­taste. Very high­ly rec­om­mend­ed. First place”

    For those seek­ing a crisp and grassy Sauvi­gnon Blanc, this is always a great option. Aro­mas of lawn clip­pings, lime peels and grape­fruit skins lead into a palate of the same, along with Granny Smith apple peels and a hint of bell pep­per. Best Buy.”
