J. Lohr J. Lohr Cabernet Sauvignon Hilltop Vineyard 2008
Our Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on a handful of select vineyard sites in the Paso Robles AVA. Blessed with long days of intense sunshine, near 100°F temperatures, and chilly, ocean-cooled nights where fifty-degree temperature swings are not uncommon, our Cabernet vines struggle to survive in the parched, often very gravelly, and sometimes lime shale-laden soils. Water is at a premium in these vineyards, enabling the viticulturist to fine-tune irrigation, producing the darkest fruit with resolved tannins year after year.

2010 is sour koolaide compared with 2008. This 2010 vintage has separated into sugar and vinegar already in 3 / 4 bottles.

Notes on the J. Lohr Cabernet Sauvignon Hilltop Vineyard 750ML 2008

Technical Notes The 2009 winegrowing season in Paso Robles is best characterized as being warmer and dryer than average. Cabernet Sauvignon does well in dry years and 2009 was no exception. Winter rainfall was well below normal for the third year in a row, recording just half of the 12 inch annual average at our Home Ranch weather station. Cold temperatures in April limited vine growth in the first month after budbreak, but was followed by a warmer May with a one day spike reaching 104°F just after bloom. The added heat units helped to establish the leaf canopy necessary to ripen this Hilltop Cabernet just in time, as an unlikely rain event on October 13th delivered between 2.5 and 11 inches of rain to the region in a single day. This 2009 Hilltop shows significant tannin structure, and the regional expression of black currant, black cherry and chocolate are evident.
