Winemaker Notes

The high fraction of Petit Verdot in the 2013 J. Lohr Carol’sVineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has produced a wine expressingchocolate and blue fruit aromas, with graphite and violet.Highlights of hazelnut and toasted croissant complement thestructured and intense plum on the palate. A great example of agreat vintage that is sure to show exceptional ageability.

Pairs well with grilled ribeye steak with rosemary and shallots, or a roasted pork loin with porcini mushrooms and fennel.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 92
Decanter
A little inexpressive on the nose at the moment, but the palate delivers vanilla oak, sweet liquorice and graphite layered upon an dark leather undertone. There’s a slight minty note from the oak, but it still shows purity of fruit.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
There is a healthy dose of 22% Petit Verdot in this bold, juicy wine, rich in wild raspberry and cassis aromas and flavors. Graphite and chocolate fill out the dense, integrated midpalate, complemented by tangy acidity that provides structure and a hint of grace.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Distinctive for its elegance and finesse, with a pure core of Cabernet shaded by spicy, toasty oak and supported by fine-grained, earthy tannins, along with a woody scent. Drink now through 2028. 1,915 cases made.

St. Helena is in the heart of the Napa Valley, nestled between Calistoga to the north and Rutherford on its southern border. On its western side, the Mayacamas Mountains guard it from the cooling effects of the Pacific Ocean; to its east stand the Vaca Mountains. In conjunction, these mountain ranges serve to lock in summer daytime heat. But in the evening, cool air from the San Pablo Bay funnels up through the valley, creating very chilly nights. It isn’t uncommon for temperatures to drop 50 degrees, a shift that promotes a balance of sugar ripeness and acidity in wine grapes.

St. Helena contains a plethora of different soil types in a small area, which have been enhanced over centuries by rain runoff from both mountain ranges. Its vineyards cover a variety of terrain, spreading across the bucolic valley floor and its benchlands.

These ideal topographic and climatic growing conditions easily caught the attention of early winemaking pioneers. In fact, St. Helena is the birthplace of Napa Valley’s commercial wine industry. Dr. Crane founded his cellar in 1859, David Fulton in 1860 and Charles Krug in 1861.

Today there are no less than 400 separate vineyards planted within the 12,000 acres that make up the St. Helena appellation.

Revered most for its red wines based on Bordeaux varieties, namely Cabernet Sauvignon, the St. Helena appellation is also a source of superior Syrah, Zinfandel and Sauvignon blanc.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
