Very pale straw yellow in color with youthful hues. The aromas are
reminiscent of ruby grapefruit, fig, and dried flowers with a balanced acidity and creaminess of texture.
Pairs well with filet of sole with lemons, capers and butter, frisee salad with fennel, red onion and vinaigrette-dressed citrus.
Two years ago, J. Lohr began the Touching Lives program in memory of Carol Waldorf Lohr, late wife of founder Jerry Lohr. In 2008, Carol passed away unexpectedly due to complications related to breast cancer. Since, the Lohr family has been working to curtail the impact of breast cancer in the lives of other families. This past year, J. Lohr set out to provide 500 mammograms for women in need by donating $2 from every bottle sold of J. Lohr Carol's Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
"Bright straw. Highly perfumed scents of lime, lemongrass, ginger and white pepper. Racy, tightly wound citrus and herb flavors are complemented by deeper notes of fennel and pear skin, with strong back-end cut. A bright mineral quality adds spine and extends through the long, nervy finish. Light on its feet but nicely concentrated, with great food-matching potential."
