A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2008 J. Lohr Winery Pinot Noir Fog's Reach Vineyard 750ml
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."
