2011 J. Lohr Carol's Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is youthful and straw yellow in color with complex aromas of ruby grapefruit, passion fruit, gooseberry, dried flowers and faint herbaceous freshness. On the palate, the wine provides an excellent balance of bright, racy acidity and fresh fruit flavors reminiscent of the aromas.
Serve with ceviche, fish tacos or other light seafood and poultry dishes.
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.
