Pure Paso 2018 J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines Red Blend Paso Robles 750ml
The Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced largely from our Shotwell Vineyard in the cooler Region II El Pomar District of Paso Robles where the climate is strongly influenced by marine air drawn in from the Pacific Ocean just 17 miles away. This ranch is predominantly planted to ENTAV clone 169 Cabernet Sauvignon on calcareous Linne-Calodo soils with slopes reaching a challenging 25%. The Petite Sirah hails from our Home Ranch in the warmer Region III Paso Robles Estrella District. This climate is ideal for this heat loving variety where we have manicured our east to west-oriented plantings to capture sunlight on the leaves’ surface while allowing the grape clusters to reach a luxurious level of maturity in the dappled sunlight below the vine canopy.
Composition: 70.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26.5% Petite Sirah, 2% Merlot, 0.5% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Malbec
