The J. Lohr Shotwell Vineyard is located in the El Pomar District of the Paso Robles AVA. The climate here is a moderate Region II on the Winkler heat accumulation scale, which characterizes it as a quite cool location for late-ripening red varieties. This tightly spaced cordon-trained, spur-pruned planting of Malbec clone 596 is laid out with an 8’ by 4’ vine spacing, and was planted in 2015 on a steep, north- facing slope of calcareous Linne-Calodo soil.
