WINE & SPIRITS, JUNE 2007 PG. 43
Value Brands of the Year J. Lohr
2004 J. Lohr Estates South Ridge Syrah
What: Estate grown wines from Jerry Lohr's extensive vineyard in Monterey County and Paso Robles.
Stand Out: The ripe soft fruit and mineral grip of the '04 South Ridge Syrah from South Ridge. Also the '04 Seven Oaks Cabernet shows that there's still real value to be found in California cabernet
Where: The Winery is based in San Jose, California and sources its fruit from estate vineyards located in some of the Central Coast's best growing areas.
When: The Syrah will quench the mightiest thirst at tri tip barbecue party; pour cabernte for steak or grilled Portobello mushrooms
