Reviews and Ratings

OTHER: Most of J. Lohr's reds are cabernet- and merlot-dominant, but there are also Mediterranean reds, such as the 2013 J. Lohr South Ridge Syrah, a juicy and refreshing syrah that has minor contributions from grenache and mourvèdre. (Rod Phillips, nuvomagazine.com, April 6, 2016). Medium-bodied & Fruity. - Community Wine Reviews OTHER: Powerfully fruity on the nose with chocolate and wood tones in support. Ripe and soft, this is fashioned in an approachable style that favours the ripe (almost sweet) black fruit tones. Rich and textured with a soft mouthfeel, this is a thoroughly quaffable wine with wide appeal. (VINTAGES panel, Oct. 2015). Full-bodied & Smooth. - Community Wine Reviews
This full-bodied Californian red wine is a blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot and Syrah grapes. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
