Winemaker's Notes:

VARIETAL COMPOSITION 84.9% Zinfandel, 12.1% Syrah, 1.0% Grenache, 1.0% Petite Sirah and 1.0% ValdiguiPRODUCTION OUTLINEThe 2007 Painter Bridge Zinfandel comes from a mix of seven Zinfandel vineyards in Paso Robles and Lodi blended with a spicy lot of Paso Robles Syrah, and a smattering of potent fruit from Grenache Noir, Petite Sirah and Valdigui. Each vineyard lot of Zinfandel is fermented separately, extracting the nuances of each individual growers fruit with an eye towards suppleness of texture.The stylistic goal of Painter Bridge Zinfandel is to emphasize the tremendous red fruit characters of the Zinfandel grape without overpowering the delicacy of the fruit with oak. The Syrah blended into the Zinfandel contributes a spice component that accentuates and broadens the resultant wine.TECHNICAL DATAVintage: 2007Origin: Paso Robles and LodiTotal Acidity: 0.65pH: 3.66Alcohol: 12.94% alcohol by volumeResidual Sugar: 0.43 g/100mlMaturation: Tank and barrel for 9 monthsWINEMAKERS COMMENTSThe 2007 Painter Bridge Zinfandel shows great color density with youthful garnet red hues.

The palate delivers a fruity, plump, yet supple wine with some spicy Zinfandel pepperiness. Enjoy with pasta puttanesca, pizza or grilled meats.

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.

Dunkelrot mit violetten Reflexen. Aromen von reifen, roten Beeren, Pflaumen und schwarzem Pfeffer. Vollmundig im Gaumen, eleganter, fruchtbetonter Wein mit einem schönen Abgang.
