12-21-11 - Restaurant Wine Proclaims Excellence in Trio of Vineyard Series Wines

Just in time for the holidays, trade pub Restaurant Wine, issues #139 and #140, reviewed three wines from J. Lohr Vineyard Series with  ‘Four Stars—Excellent quality for its type, style and price. Among the very best of its type for its price. Highly recommended.’

These three wines will make a delicious statement at any gathering this season and beyond. Looking for a full-flavored Cab?  We’ve got two different expressions from the stellar 2007 vintage: Hilltop Cab from Paso Robles and Carol’s Vineyard Cab from our vineyards in St. Helena, Napa Valley.
“Hilltop is fleshy and rich in style; a concentrated Cabernet with velvety texture, intense blackberry, plum jam, pepper, toast, vanilla and spicy oak. Long finish.”
“Carol’s Vineyard is a firm, slimmer wine (yet still full bodied and richly flavored), with a very long finish, tasting of black currant, toast, blackberry jam, vanilla, cedar, and spicy oak. Excellent.”
Pinot lovers will rejoice if they are new to the 2009 J. Lohr Fog’s Reach Pinot Noir: “A full, ripe style of Pinot…rich, full bodied, and long on the palate, with a finish redolent of strawberry, plum, red currant, toast, clove, and sage. Excellent.”
