J Lohr 40th Anniversary Red 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The predominant fruit for the J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon comes from estate vineyards located directly opposite their J. Lohr Paso Robles Wine Center. The Seven Oaks vineyard was originally planted on its own rootstock, utilizing some of the original plantings from indigenous Estrella clones. The soils in their Paso Robles vineyards vary from gravelly clay loam to limestone-based soils over a relatively small parcel of land, and various rootstock and clonal combinations have been used to maximize the expression of each individual site. The different soil types and planting combinations add to and complement the palate of the Seven Oaks Cabernet and the other red varietals they produce--including Petit Verdot and Merlot--to add balance and weight to the wine.

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.

J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is intensely-colored with youthful and bright hues. An abundance of dark cherry, black currant and berry fruit greets the nose, enhanced by spicy cedar, vanilla and toasty notes. On the palate, the fruit follows through with full weight and a lingering intensity and balance from the tannins. This wine is ready to be enjoyed now, or cellared for 5 years.

The 2012 J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is red-purple in color with a bright hue at release. Fruit aromas are black cherry, plum and blueberry accented with a barrel bouquet of toasted pastry, dark caramel and vanilla. Sturdy tannins strike the palate and finish with the high-toned fruit signature typical of the Paso Robles appellation. - Steve Peck, red winemaker COMPOSITION (BLEND): 76% Cabernet Sauvignon 8% Petite Sirah 6% Merlot 5% Petit Verdot 2% Syrah 1% Cabernet Franc 2% other red FERMENTATION: Fermented in stainless steel tanks with peak temperatures reaching 92°F MALOLACTIC: ML fermentation completed in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels, using Viniflora Oenos MATURATION: 12 months aging in 60 gallon oak barrels BARREL TYPE: Primarily Missouri and Minnesota American oak with toasted heads PH: 3.7 TOTAL ACIDITY: 0.62 g/100ml ALCOHOL: 13.8% by volume RESIDUAL SUGAR: 0.19 g/100ml
