J. Lohr Pure Paso™ Proprietary Red Wine Paso Robles
J. Lohr Pure Paso combines Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah - two J. Lohr historic, benchmark varieties. The Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from our Shotwell Vineyard in Paso Robles’ El Pomar District. The Petite Sirah was grown in the Estrella and San Miguel Districts. Aged for 18 months in American and French oak.
J. Lohr Pure Paso is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah, two varieties long intertwined in J. Lohr’s winegrowing history in Paso Robles.
The Petite Sirah grape has found its perfect New World home in California, though the variety originated in France in the late 1800s as “Durif,” a cross between Syrah and Peloursin.
The Paso Robles region’s dramatic daily low-high temperature swings during the growing season (often spanning 45 to 50°F) provides perfect conditions for both Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah.
J. Lohr Pure Paso is aged for eighteen months in a combination of American and French oak barrels. The American oak cooperage provides hints of coconut and vanilla to the wine; the French oak contributes notes of chocolate, coffee, and spice.
