J Lohr 'Tower Road' Petite Sirah 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Violets, plum, caramel and spice greet the nose. This is fairly spicy with some nice fudgy undertones. A bit round on entry, then turning rather focused. This is fairly big framed but well-balanced with well-managed tannins and integrated acidity that keeps the wine lively in the mouth. The flavors are rather earthy with plum and blackberry tones that extend nicely onto the finish, which shows a bit of coffee, oak and spice; but it’s all quite well-balanced with a hint of black pepper on the finale. 88pts

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.

Had this one sitting for a couple months. . . have to say was impressed with the "supple boldness" this wine showed...everything was in place, color, aromas, and finish. They say it will go good with roasted grilled meats and game...I had it with bbq ribs that I always make and the paring was near perfect (out of all the wines I have paired this one was by far the best for the price).
