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

Dense ruby leading to garnet in the glass. Big toast and smokiness on the nose with hints of cocoa, vanilla and some light funk. Once that gives way, there is lush, dense strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruit. Very light suggestions of sage and white pepper. On the palate, it has a spicy entry. Oregano and thyme, followed by denser crushed blue and blackberry fruits. Hints of cola, cocoa dust and bramble are there as well. Some hints of cedar. It's a powerful and concentrated flavor profile, so definitely a pinot built for food pairing. Nice acid and tannin structure and a spicy, cedary quality remains through the finish with a zesty aftertaste. Big and bold style. Solid pinot and in a different than usual style. 88 pts. 10/31/12

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. 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."

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.
