Notes from the Winemaker
The 2018 J. Lohr Estates Los Osos Merlot is medium-dark in color with a red hue. Varietal aromas of black plum and violet meld with the light barrel signature of baking spices and toasted pastry. A generous fraction of Malbec in the blend accentuates bright fruit tones and contributes notes of pomegranate and hibiscus flower. This wine is lively and bright on the palate and cascades to a lengthy, red-fruit finish. FOOD PAIRINGS Delicious with grilled sausage and roasted summer vegetables.

Reviews and Accolades
88 Points/Wine Enthusiast
This is a clean and well-rounded wine that's affordably ideal for everyday sipping at the dinner table. Aromas of red cherry and oak lead into a palate that is framed by firm tannins and full of black cherry foam, caramel and cocoa flavors.
