2020 J. Lohr Gesture Mourvèdre


The 2020 Gesture Mourvèdre will be available soon!

Be notified of future releases

This 2020 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.

    10 Years

The source for our Gesture Mourvèdre is the J. Lohr Gean Vineyard, 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 required for our members’ limited release Gesture program. The farming plan here brings the Mourvèdre vines to just one cluster per shoot prior to veraison to intensify flavor; this large-clustered red Rhone variety requires trimming the “wings” and “shoulders” off the clusters as well, to further help focus the fruit character. Aged sixteen months in 3-year-old, tight grain French oak puncheons. Only 255 cases produced. Certified California Sustainable.
