J. Lohr Estates Wildflower Valdiguié 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is harvested from the 'Wildflower' vineyard in the town of Greenfield in Monterey County. The vines are grown primarily in Chualar loam soils, but about one third are rooted in Arroyo Secco gravely, sandy loam. Both soils are underlain by stones deposited from the Arroyo Secco. The wine itself is brilliant magenta in colour, and has an intense varietal aroma of raspberry, boysenberry and strawberry with hints of white pepper. The brambly fruit aromas carry through on the palate and are balanced by the moderate acidity and touch of residual sugar.

Founded in 1972, J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines crafts an array of acclaimed wines from estate vineyards in Monterey County, Paso Robles and Napa Valley. From this world-class palette of fruit, J. Lohr produces three tiers of award-winning wines – J. Lohr Estates, J. Lohr Vineyard Series and J. Lohr Cuvée Series. Selecting Monterey County’s Arroyo Seco appellation for his original vineyard, Jerry planted his first 280 acres of grapes beginning in 1972. Ideally suited for cool-climate winegrowing, these vineyards have become an acclaimed source for outstanding Chardonnay, Riesling, Valdiguié and Pinot Noir. At the heart of J. Lohr’s renowned red wine program are its 2,000 acres of estate vineyards in Paso Robles. Featuring warm, sunny days, cool nights and diverse soils, these vineyards have proven ideal for cultivating a flavorful array of grapes including voluptuous and complex Bordeaux varietals of Cabernet, Merlot and Cabernet Franc along with Syrah and Zinfandel.
