2013 J. Lohr Vineyard Series Carol's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

$60.00

Out of Stock

The high fraction of Petit Verdot in the 2013 J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has produced a wine expressing chocolate and blue fruit aromas, with graphite and violet. Highlights of hazelnut and toasted croissant complement the structured and intense plum on the palate. A great example of a great vintage that is sure to show exceptional ageability.

Touching Lives, One Toast at a Time

In 2016, to touch the lives of women and their families, J. Lohr is once again partnering with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., a relationship that has helped fund over 4,500 mammograms to women who would otherwise be unable to afford them. This is our way of not only honoring the legacy of Carol Waldorf Lohr, but is also our commitment to curtailing the impact of breast cancer. Now in our campaign’s 7th year, Touching Lives is extending its impact in two ways: by now offering $3 from every bottle sold of 2013 J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon to benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation, an increase of 50% over previous vintages, and by expanding its support to include Patient Navigation programs and services. $2 from every bottle sold of any vintage of Carol’s Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc and previous vintages of Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon will benefit NBCF.

We’re Encouraging Women to Take Charge

The National Breast Cancer Foundation’s mission is to provide help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services. J. Lohr is continuing to advocate for women’s empowerment through knowledge and body self-awareness. It’s never too early to become one’s own best health advocate, and the National Breast Cancer Foundation has the resources to help.

Vintage

2013 was a stress-free vintage in St. Helena, with warm and dry spring conditions leading to an early budbreak. The weather remained ideal through flowering and berry set, resulting in an even crop and good yields. With the exception of one heat spike in late June, the weather remained warm and sunny throughout the growing season. These favorable weather conditions gave us the opportunity to harvest the vineyard at the most optimal time. The vineyard produced wines of exceptional structure and aromatic quality the likes of which have not been seen in over a decade.

Vineyard

Carol’s Vineyard lies in northern St. Helena along the Napa River at Pratt Avenue. Comprised of 16.4 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon (Clone 337 on 3309 rootstock) and 4.3 acres of Petit Verdot (Clone 400 on 3309 rootstock), the well-drained, gravelly, sandy loam soil and Bordeaux-like climate of the Napa Valley is ideally suited to producing richly textured, luxury-quality fruit.
