Reviews and Ratings

The numbers 6, 8 and 9 are considered lucky representing happiness, wealth and longevity, and we hope this wine continues to be as good as the current 2013 vintage from J. Lohr. Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Sirah wine grapes are employed to make this wine giving dark chocolate, vanilla on the nose, and a mouthful of ripe and rich dark fruit on the palate. There is good acidity on the wine and tannins are soft - a very drinkable wine. - Community Wine Reviews
