J. Lohr Signature Cabernet Sauvignon

Over thirty years ago I saw the future potential of Paso Robles. I knew instinctively that here was a special place for growing superb Cabernet Sauvignon. In this year of my 80th birthday, I am gratified that our team’s vision was proven correct. We have worked diligently since those early days to produce a Cabernet to equal any in the world. I believe we have succeeded with this first–ever vintage of J. Lohr Signature Cabernet Sauvignon.
I know the Paso Robles land well; I have walked and farmed these vineyard blocks for years. For this very limited release, we intentionally selected grapes during the excellent 2013 harvest from our higher elevations on steep slopes of calcareous soils, with a slightly cooler climate. No expense was spared in the crafting of this wine: hand harvested fruit; gentle handling and pressing; nineteen months aging in new French oak cooperage. My signature on the label indicates that this is a personal statement of exceptional quality.
Thank you for your support of our family’s winegrowing efforts. I am proud of the pioneering journey that my three children, our team, and I have taken to reach this point. I hope that this very special, debut Signature wine finds an honored place in your cellar and on your table.

This inaugural J. Lohr Signature Cabernet Sauvignon was produced to honor the 80th birthday of our founder, Jerry Lohr. It was specially selected and blended from the superb 2013 vintage in Paso Robles. It represents both a tribute to Jerry’s pioneering efforts in the region and our portfolio’s ultimate, limited red wine release.
