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.

  • J. Lohr Arroyo Seco Chardonnay 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Almost stony on the nose, with a nice, deep white floral note and hints of jasmine and light wild strawberry fruit. Round, soft and lightly honeyed on entry with tropical mango and papaya flavors along with dried apricot notes that are sweet and a little sticky. This has good acidity but plenty of sugar to make it sweet; while not cloying, it is... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    I enjoyed this with braised beef shank in a red wine based braising liquid with mushrooms and garlic. The wine a 2007 was a terrific complement that was mellow and easy drinking. The tannins were soft and there was a hint of smoke and spice. Read More

  • J. Lohr Cuvée St. E 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Big black currant and black plum fruit greet the nose over black olive, bay leaf, roast beef, tobacco and mint nuances. This is dry, linear and compact on entry with a lovely brambly black currant perfume. There's plenty of tannins here but they're not too dry and they are well covered by the earthy, slightly leather black fruits on the palate. ... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    I discovered this wine while working at the Keg Steakhouse & Bar in Edmonton, AB. Great with steak and easy to drink. Woody and fruity, and one of my personal top 5 as it is easy to find and usually in the $20 range. Read More

    Wine review by GoldFork


  • J. Lohr Wildflower 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Red fruit, vanilla, herbs and toasted spices come together on a nose that is fresh and well-balanced. Rather firm and dry in the mouth, there's an underlying minerality here that adds depth to the palate. The tannins are slightly austere, balancing out the fruit ripe with wild cherry, plum and pomegranate flavors. The back end shows some wood sp... Read More
