Winemaker Notes

The 2017 Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon opens with vibrant aromas of black cherry, cassis, and plum, with notes of black tea and baking spice. The palate is rewarding with plush textures, anise, and red cherry on the finish.

Enjoyable now but can easily age 10 years or more.

Tasting Panel
This blackand blue-fruited “Cabernet with a cause” is named after Jerry Lohr’s late wife; a portion of its proceeds support the J. Lohr Touching Lives program, a partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Even-tempered yet plush and expressive, it offers complex notes of roasted coffee bean and a meaty quality on the mid-palate. Minerality comes through with grace on the powerful foundation.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 J. Lohr Carol's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is firm and well-built. TASTING NOTES: This wine delivers excellent aromas and flavors of black fruit, violets, and a suggestion of oak. Try it with an oven-baked eye of the round roast. (Tasted: March 29, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Extroverted, with blueberry, açaí berry and plum fruit flavors taking an assertive lead throughout, while warm cocoa, tobacco and licorice notes fill in through the finish. There's a polished feel overall. Drink now through 2028. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

With dense flavors of dried plum, currant and dark chocolate, this is a rich, rounded and fully ripe red. The oak is spicy in cinnamon and clove, with a lasting taste of vanilla. With its plush, sizable tannins, it would pair well with grilled steak.

St. Helena Wine

Napa Valley, California

View all products

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, Malbecand 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.
