J. Lohr Fog's Reach Pinot Noir 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red-purple with youthful hues and moderate density, the J. Lohr Fog's Reach Pinot Noir has enticing aromas of strawberry, cherry and rhubarb jam, with a bouquet of toasted oak and vanilla. The flavors are reminiscent of stewed strawberry and cherry with oak spiciness. A wisp of fresh herbs with a velvety structure, and a long, lingering finish make the Fog's Reach the perfect accompaniment to grilled lamb or duck.

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.

Black cherry, black raspberry, cola and a touch of tar reveal themselves on the fruit-driven nose. On the palate, the wine shows fine, silky tannins with bright acidity that keeps the wine lively...carrying the dark red fruit through a clean, precise ... Alex Shaw.

From J. Lohr's Single Vineyard Collection, this wine is named for the rolling fog that reaches into the vineyards and cools the sun-drenched grapes. 91 points in Wine Enthusiast Magazine and 93 points from Wine & Spirits who said "Grown at J. Lohr's GV9 Ranch, this wine is pure coastal refinement. It achieved that distinction through a cold winter and spring that reduced yields to half of a normal crop; then a long, moderate season produced this wine's clean, transparent fruit character, somewhere between bright persimmon and tart red grapefruit. The brisk flavors last with the peppery buzz of shiso and umami depths."

Winemaker Notes - Deep red-purple with youthful hues and moderate density. Enticing aromas of strawberry and rhubarb jam, with a bouquet of toasted oak and sage. The flavors are reminiscent of stewed strawberry and cherry with hazelnut spiciness. A wisp of fresh herbs and tactile structure leave a long, lingering finish.
