2019 J. Lohr Gesture Mourvèdre
Be notified of future releases
This 2019 J. Lohr Gesture Mourvèdre is medium in color with expressive varietal aromas of blackberry and ripe black cherry, accentuated by notes of dried anise and thyme. The lively palate has a juicy, red berry core and smooth, evolved tannins. Black pepper and blueberry linger on the finish.

This wine is excellent with many of the specialties of southwestern France and Catalonia, such as pork roast or a platter of prosciutto tapas, Marcona almonds, fresh figs, and aged cheeses.
The source for our Gesture Mourvèdre is the J. Lohr Gean Ranch, which is the westernmost vineyard in the entire Paso Robles AVA. This planting, located in the Adelaida District sub-AVA, was established in 2009 and now produces wines of the balance and intensity needed for our members’ limited release Gesture program. The farming plan brings the crop to just one cluster per shoot prior to veraison; to intensify flavor, these large- clustered varieties require trimming the “wings” and “shoulders” off the clusters as well.
