In the St. Helena appellation of Napa Valley lies a 35-acre parcel of land called Carol’s Vineyard, named after Jerry Lohr’s late wife, to whom he was married for 48 years. Here, ideal temperatures and clay loam soils provide superb conditions for growing both Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. The climate also mimics that of Bordeaux. As a result, Carol’s Vineyard has yielded fruit of exceptional quality, character and depth of flavor for over two and a half decades. Grapes used in our J. Lohr Carol's Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc are hand-harvested in the cool of morning, crushed, gently pressed, and fermented primarily in stainless steel barrels to retain the varietal's bright, crisp gooseberry and grapefruit flavors. To complement this wine’s classic style, a small portion of the fruit is fermented in new French oak barrels for added depth and complexity. The fruit for our J. Lohr Carol's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is also hand-harvested to preserve the intense flavors and colors. Blended with Petit Verdot and aged in French oak barrels for 18 to 20 months, this Cabernet is defined by deep black cherry and currant flavors and aromas, with a hint of licorice.
