J. Lohr Pinot Noir Vineyard Series Fog's Reach 2011
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.
Editorial Reviews for J. Lohr Pinot Noir Vineyard Series Fog's Reach
Big black cherry, vanilla and cola notes greet the nose along with nuanced smoky, toasty oak, black currant jam and a bit of clove. A bit less intense than the nose suggest, this is none the less a fairly rich wine though one with plenty of acidity keeping it lively in the mouth. Packed with black cherry and black raspberry fruit over some stone nuances and wrapped in a vanilla and cream gauze this is sure to be a crowd pleaser. It’s just a touch chewy in the mouth with the wood tannins showing up a bit on the moderately long, wood spiced finish but this checks all the boxes. 90pts
