Winemaker Notes

The 2018 J. Lohr Fog's Reach Pinot Noir expresses the varietal terroir of the Arroyo Seco region. This wine has a bright strawberry and blue sage on the nose with an abundance of red cherry and spice on the palate and finish.

Pair with a wild mushroom polenta or a board of Spanish charcuterie.

Critical Acclaim

SJ 93
The Somm Journal

This deep, dark, and shadowy Pinot Noir exudes formidable aromas of beetroot, cinnamon, nutmeg, and earth as well as lush and delicious flavors of black cherry– tinged coffee bean. Rhubarb meets fudge on the finish, leaving you desiring more.

V 91
Vinous
Bright ruby-red. Pungent red and blue fruit, succulent flowers and herbs on the nose. Primary bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors show good depth and pick up a spicy nuance on the back half. Shows firm grip and hints of licorice and sage on the persistent finish, which is framed by chewy, even tannins.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 J. Lohr Fog's Reach Pinot Noir is pleasing, well-balanced, and smooth on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine's delightful aromas and flavors of red and black fruit, as well as a layered palate, make it an excellent choice with Coq au Vin.

Monterey, California

Named after the dramatic, seasonal river of rain and snowmelt that cuts through the upper elevations of the Santa Lucia Mountains, the Arroyo Seco AVA extends east from the resultant mountain gorge, and into the rural and warm Salinas Valley. During the growing season, cool and damp Pacific Ocean air penetrates the gorge and flows into the valley, creating a cool evening respite for vineyards after a hot summer day. This natural water-release has also created a subterranean aquifer, which helps set the foundation of the AVA's boundaries and supplies the vineyards with water.

Arroyo Seco was actually home to the first commercial vineyard in California, called Mission Ranch, which was owned and propogated by the Mirassou family in the 1960s.

Chardonnay is most widely grown here. But as one of Monterey’s warmer regions, Arroyo Seco enjoys the highest praise for its reds, namely Bordeaux blends.

Arroyo Seco is one of the oldest AVAs in California, its status granted in the early 1980s, and also remains one of its smallest.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
