Gold Medal 2023 Winemakers' Challenge

The 2020 Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon displays fragrant black cherry and cassis aromas, layered with hazelnut and patisserie from the French oak barrel aging. Dark berry flavors saturate the palate, intertwining with fine-grained tannins and spiced notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cocoa.

— Brenden Wood, red winemaker

Touching Lives, One Toast at a Time

A donation from every bottle sold of J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is made to support and further National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. programs.

This year marks the fifteenth anniversary of J. Lohr’s heartfelt partnership with National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. The Touching Lives initiative began when the Lohr family designated the J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon a commemorative release in honor of founder Jerry Lohr’s late wife. Carol Waldorf Lohr passed away in 2008 due to complications from breast cancer.

Today, $3 from every purchase of J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, whether at your local restaurant, wine shop, online or at our Wine Centers, is donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Since the program’s inception, sales from J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard releases have supported early breast cancer detection, access to mammograms, patient navigation systems, and the delivery of HOPE Kits (a gift box of comforting items) to women undergoing breast cancer treatment. These programs continue to build on a partnership that has funded over 8,000 mammograms for women who otherwise would not be able to afford them.

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.


The J. Lohr Carol’s Vineyard lies in northern St. Helena along the Napa River. Comprised of 27 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.


The 2020 vintage in Napa Valley saw a dry winter with no major rain events until the end of March. Moderate springtime temperatures kicked off the growing season ahead of schedule and summer weather seemed to have larger than normal diurnal fluctuation. In late summer that year, northern California was impacted by the devastating, massive LNU Complex fires which began in mid-August and raged for over six weeks. Another destructive fire, the Glass fire, started in Napa County on the morning of Sunday, September 27. Heroically, our experienced, longtime vineyard manager Tony Mitchell was able to quickly pull together his crew that same morning; they hand-picked 10 tons of Cabernet Sauvignon before the fire came dangerously close to our Carol’s Vineyard.
