Posted by jlohrwines, Feb 23, 2010.

Anyone going there? Our director of wine education, Lawrence Lohr, will be pouring some of J. Lohr’s fantastic Rhone varietals including our 2008 J. Lohr Gesture Mourvèdre, 2007 J. Lohr Tower Road Petite Sirah and our new 2009 J. Lohr Gesture Viognier! Stop by our booth and say hello and have a taste with us.

We will be Tweeting from the event. If you are interested in following, our handle is @jlohrwines.

Anyone know the #hashtag for the event? Should we use #RhoneSF

Report back as you can, please. Imagine there'll be plenty of 2007s there from the Rhone, so comparisons with other vintages will also be interesting.

And good luck with that head on Monday. ;-)

WoW!  What a fun tasting, and not as crowded as I expected!  There was MORE than enough time to taste whatever one wanted to taste.  This is a quickie response since I need to run off in a minute, will try to get more specific with vintage later.  But my favs were:  Tablas creek, hands down number one; Anglim Mourvedre was my fav Mourvedre; Outpost Howell Mtn Petite syrah was awesome; both black sheep and Frick had yummy cinsaults; Big Basin winery has one of my new favs- Mandala syrah; Pride Mtn Vineyards had some awesome wines... that is just a few for now. I took notes but will have to post more later.  What a great day!!!
