J. Lohr Estates Falcon's Perch Pinot Noir 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has a garnet color, and is adorned with aromas of red fruit, lilac, rose petal, vanilla and notes of sage and thyme. Tar, beeswax and oak frame the complex varietal character unique to Pinot Noir. Soft tannins on the palate give way to the fine, talcy finish on this very food friendly wine. —Steve Peck, red winemaker

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.

Smoky on the nose with nice cherry and cola aromas that have grilled beef, green herb and toasty oak highlights. Nicely tart and acid-driven on entry, this quickly shows some meaty flavors along with notes of black cherry pie and plenty of wood spice. The texture is fairly smooth if a little chunky with peppery accents on the mid-palate that lead to a very spiced cherry pie note on the moderately long finish, which is both a bit hot and a bit bitter with wood tannins. There's nice fruit here, you just have to love oak to enjoy it. 85pts
