Lohr produces three tiers of award-winning wines – J. Lohr Estates, J. Lohr Vineyard Series and J. Lohr Cuvée Series.

Nearly sparkling with a hint of sweetness, but overall on the dry side. Lemon lime fizz, brass doorknobs, and apricot spice on the palate. At only 12% alcohol, it's decent for a Wednesday evening.

This elegant Chardonnay has an attractive pale strawyellow color. The aromas are of pear, apple and stone fruits, combined with a perfumed roasted hazelnut and butterscotch bouquet from the barrel fermentation and sur lie aging. The flavors are very soft with ripe pear, tangelo citrus and vanilla toastiness, producing layers of complexity with a silky balance of fresh fruit acidity and palate-weight. - Jeff Meier, winemaker ** SOLD OUT **

The aromas are of nectarine, peach pie and apple--combined with the perfumed vanilla and toasted oak bouquet from barrel and malolactic fermentation and sur lie aging--creating an elegant Chardonnay from Monterey's Arroyo Seco AVA. The flavors are very clean, with peach, nectarine and citrus with subtle butter and vanilla toastiness, producing layers of complexity with an excellent balance of fresh fruit acidity and palate weight.

Dezentes Strohgelb mit feinen Grüntonreflexen. Blumiges, komplexes Aroma mit Noten von Aprikosen, Pfirsichen, Melonen und Litchi. Ein äusserst erfrischender und spritziger Wein mit einem angenehmen Zusammenspiel zwischen Säure und Süsse.
