Hops & Grapes USD 11.98 750ml

J. Lohr Syrah Paso Robles South Ridge 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark and jammy on the nose with lots of licorice, fennel seed, and green seed tones under lightly chocolaty fruit. This is really fairly soft in the mouth with little detail. The fruit is fairly intense, candied red cherry and plum with some Jolly Rancher acids in the back. Fruit-forward, easy to drink, formless and very short, not to mention a touch hot considering the stated alcohol. 82pts

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.
