Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) J. Lohr's Merlot grapes are grown in Nacimiento-Los Osos, Arbuckle-San Ysidro and Arbuckle-Positas complex soils on their Los Osos vineyard in Paso Robles, where these well-drained but relatively poor soils have chalky or gravelly components. The resulting wine is dark, youthful and plum red in colour. It has complex aromas of blueberry, raspberry, violet and dried cherries with a bouquet of vanilla, caramel and toasted oak. The ripe and ample tannins and lovely Merlot fruit character are supported by good acidity creating a substantial wine with layers of complexity that make it read more...an excellent choice to accompany hearty foods. The ideal compliment to the heartiest lamb, beef and wild game dishes. (hide)
