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 Estates Los Osos Merlot 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Chocolate, herb and carob come together on the nose with lightly beefy base notes and plenty of spicy top notes. Soft and a bit plump in the mouth, this is slightly creamy with bright red cherry fruit saturating the palate. Theres a nice layer of wood spice floating under the fruit, with a vanilla cream accent popping on the back end. The back e... Read More

    Wine review by calywa


  • It’s not easy to find great Riesling under $12. It is a very particular challenge since producers can always rely on their favorite crutch, sugar, when producing Rieslings. After working through over a case of value priced Rieslings, I was becoming a bit discouraged. Then, I hit on a series of wines from Washington State that made me take notice... Read More

  • J. Lohr Wildflower 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Needed to breathe. Black fruit on the nose. Tasted of black cherries with a hint of vanilla and had surprisingly low alcohol. Wasn't as good as previous bottles I have had from J Lohr. Read More

    Wine review by Eric Tinch


  • During the Rose virtual tasting, some folks started talking about the various ways to make rose.  (Bleed off wine early from red maceration, shorten contact between skins and wine, mix red and white, which is banned some places).  But someone said that all grapes have white flesh.  Almost perfectly true, but there is a very small group of grapes...
