Paso Robles AVA, San Luis Obispo County, California
Paso Robles Cabernet Franc is the backbone of this wine, emulating many of the Right Bank wines of Saint-Émilion.
The inspiration for our J. Lohr Cuvée St. E comes from the Grand Cru wines of St. Émilion on Bordeaux’s famed Right Bank. These memorable wines are composed primarily from Cabernet Franc and Merlot, often with touches of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. We strive to emulate these great Bordeaux wines in style but as seen through the unique prism of our world-class Paso Robles-grown fruit. Aged 18 months in 225-liter French oak cooperage, 60% being new wood. Final cépage: 71% Cabernet Franc, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot. Only 400 cases produced.
