    J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon — 50 Affordable Wines You Can Always Trust”
    Food & Wine
    , November 3, 2022
    One of the biggest growers in the Central Coast, the Lohr family farms more than 3,600 acres of vines in Monterey County and Paso Robles. The latter vineyards are the primary source for this finely made, incredibly reliable red. It hews to a crowd-pleasing style, with sweet American oak accents and plenty of aromatic, juicy cherry fruit.”

    2019 J. Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay — The Best Affordable White Wine, $15 and Under“
    Food & Wine, November 3, 2022
    Ripe peach and tropical fruit notes abound in this full-bodied white. For those who like their Chardonnay in the richer and more creamy California style, this is a consistent winner.”

    2019 J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon - 91 Points, St. Helena 2019: The top Cabernets from this Napa AVA
    Decanter
    , September 2022
    Paso Robles-based J. Lohr also produces this Napa Cabernet from Carol’s Vineyard in St Helena, a site named for Jerry Lohr’s late wife. A very nice wine with red-toned fruit aromas tinged with cedar and pine freshness. Full-bodied with strawberry and rhubarb pie flavours, ripe cherries and palate-coating pixelated tannins.” — Jonathan Cristaldi

    Top 100 Best Buys of 2022
    This widely available wine is worth stocking for midweek enjoyment. Light aromas of lemon, honey, nectarine and crushed white rock lead into a palate of baked apple and lemon juice, all framed by a chalky structure.” — Matt Kettmann
