Winemaker Notes

A milestone wine for J. Lohr that harnesses our history with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah from the region. Classic Cabernet Sauvignon with its savory notes are wrapped in the dark fruit character of Petite Sirah. Pairs well with tomato rice dishes like paella or creamy risotto. Exquisite with prime rib or a dense monkfish.

Blend: 70.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26.5% Petite Sirah, 2% Merlot, 0.5% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Malbec

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

For being a larger production winery, J. Lohr continually produces lush and delicious wines that continue to define the Paso Robles potential. This new blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec begins with strawberry, violet and baking spice on the nose, while the palate’s creamy mouthfeel carries mocha, cappuccino, caramel and black cherry flavors. There’s just enough tannic firmness to the lush profile.

TP 92
Tasting Panel
A nod to J. Lohr’s 30-plus years of grape-growing in Paso Robles, this inaugural release is a royal purple–hued blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah with small amounts of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec that offers aromas of cedar, blueberry, and ripe plum. A silky beauty aged 18 months in barrel (20% new), it features dusty tannins that develop into a juicier texture as the wine opens up, leaving behind lip-smacking notes of ripe black fruit and dried violets.

Paso Robles Wine

Central Coast, California

View all products

Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, powerful, fruit-driven 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.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
