J. Lohr 2014 Los Osos Merlot - still a soft and silky Merlot with a juicy core of blueberry and raspberry. Score - 4 Stars (out of 5). (Michael Pinkus, michaelpinkuswinereview.com, Sept. 3, 2016)
Los Osos Merlot is grown in our vineyards in the Estrella Hills area of Paso Robles, one of only three appellations in California that produce "world class" Merlot. This wine has aromas of raspberry, red currant and blackberry. The flavors are very rich and concentrated with substantial yet velvety tannins. This wine is an ideal pairing for seafood bisque or filet with wild mushrooms.
Insider's Pick, Winter 2014 This California Merlot is from the renowned J. Lohr brand, which offers the typical approachable style. Plus the 12% Malbec blend factor seems to give this wine a lovely Morello cherry component plus hints of chocolate and great supple drinkability. Try with gingery Asian cuisine or pork chops. - Stephen Schiedel, Portfolio Manager, Wines of Canada, USA & South America.
