Winemaker Notes

The 2015 J. Lohr Cuvée St. E captures the ripe but savory side of the Bordeaux varieties. This wine is dark in color with a bright garnet hue. Aromas of red currant, coffee bean and dark chocolate lead to a palate of ripe plum and cassis. Tightly wound tannins are typical in Cabernet Franc and present the greatest reward after a few years of bottle age.

A perfect pairing for filet mignon with a shallot cream sauce or Osso Bucco (braised veal shanks) over a bed of polenta.

Blend: 80% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
TP 96
Tasting Panel
The Right Bank’s Saint-Émilion appellation inspired this blend of 80% Cabernet Franc (from J. Lohr’s Home Ranch in the Estrella District) and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose, lilacs and cherries come alive with ripe boysenberry and maple-coffee. Tightly wound tannins open slowly in this creamy, full-bodied red, whose pleasing, caressing texture is further accentuated by cassis and blueberry.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

This homage Saint-Émilion shows rich aromas of black currant, toast and roasted wood on the nose. It’s concentrated on the palate, carrying mouthfilling flavors of cassis, peppercorn, cocoa, espresso and herbs, all wrapped in smooth tannins.

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

The St. E blend (as in St. Emilion) is 80 percent cabernet franc, the balance cabernet sauvignon. It’s pleasingly savory from the outset, with scents of cedar frond and tomato leaf, all in the service of plump cassis fruit, purple and very concentrated, with a texture that’s lean enough for flank steak.

Paso Robles Wine

Central Coast, California

Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, powerful, fruit-driven Central Coast wines. But with eleven smaller sub-AVAs, there is actually quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

Just east over the Santa Lucia Mountains from the chilly Pacific Ocean, lie the coolest in the region: Adelaida, Templeton Gap and (Paso Robles) Willow Creek Districts, as well as York Mountain AVA and Santa Margarita Ranch. These all experience more ocean fog, wind and precipitation compared to the rest of the Paso sub-appellations. The San Miguel, (Paso Robles) Estrella, (Paso Robles) Geneso, (Paso Robles) Highlands, El Pomar and Creston Districts, along with San Juan Creek, are the hotter, more western appellations of the greater Paso Robles AVA.

This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Grenache and Rhône blends, both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruit-driven, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.

View all products

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
