Winemaker Notes

The 2018 Cypress Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon features a deep red color, with aromas of black plum and dark chocolate. The palate is medium in weight with a juicy and soft finish. Serious enough for the connoisseur and friendly enough for the casual wine drinker, this wine will pair well with a range of dining options, from marinated beef kabobs to pasta. Enjoy in its youth, or cellar for up to three years for added complexity.

About Winery

From California’s legendary Central Coast are Cypress Vineyards, wines which translate the alchemy of fruit, climate, earth and water into a poetic expression of flavors so radiant and refreshing they taste as if they were kissed by sun and sea. The ocean’s influence on this winegrowing region is significant, keeping coastal and inland valleys refreshingly cool, preserving the grape’s natural acidity and flavor. Temperature is critical for development of flavor, fragrance, and acidity—too little heat, and grapes rarely ripen—too much, and the acidity, delicate and endearing qualities of the grape are lost. For wines from Cypress Vineyards, the daily cooling air from the Pacific moves directly from the Monterey Bay and down the Monterey appellations of the Salinas Valley, creating flavorful wines with finesse and balance.

It’s no coincidence that the Central Coast’s emergence as a world class winegrowing region runs parallel with the establishment and growth of J. Lohr Vineyards & Winery. Founder Jerry Lohr is one of the region’s pioneers and has played a larger-than-life role in bringing the area to prominence.

Jerry’s instincts led him to two regions located about 75 miles apart. In the early 1970s, he chose Monterey County’s Arroyo Seco district, with its cool, windy climate and rocky soils, as ideal for Chardonnay. In the 1980s, he recognized the potential of Paso Robles for growing Bordeaux varietals, especially Cabernet Sauvignon – given the area’s rich soils and dramatic diurnal temperature swings between warm days and cool nights.

After Jerry Lohr’s nearly decade-long search for the right place to plant his first vineyard, he chose a site in Monterey County that was to become the heart of the Arroyo Seco appellation. Jerry originally planted 280 acres in 1972 and 1973 near Greenfield. Monterey County’s Arroyo Seco appellation has proved ideal for growing layered, complex Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Brisk winds and fog off Monterey Bay, stony, well-drained soils, and a lack of damaging fall rains all combine to produce grapes with trademark fruit intensity and balancing acidity. In 1974, Jerry unveiled the first J. Lohr winery in San Jose.

In the early 1980s, Jerry Lohr saw the potential for great Cabernet Sauvignon further south. Borrowing a lesson from the French—that great Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon excel in very different growing conditions—Jerry began planting Cabernet Sauvignon and other red varieties in San Luis Obispo County’s then little-known Paso Robles region in 1986. With the hands-on devotion of an artisan farmer, Jerry tended to the vines while diligently working toward the creation and development of an adjacent winery and barreling cellars; J. Lohr’s Paso Robles production facility was opened in 1988.

Production Notes

The windswept Cypress tree, the unmistakable signature plant of California’s coastal terrain, owes its gnarled appearance to the maritime air’s persistent movement inland and seaward. The ocean’s influence on the Central Coast winegrowing region is significant, keeping coastal and inland valleys refreshingly cool at night, while preserving the grape’s natural acidity. For Cypress Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 vintage was characterized by average winter rainfall, followed by a cool spring and warm summer temperatures. This vintage produced darklycolored Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe, pure varietal flavors. Our passionate commitment to our Cypress Vineyards red wines is to preserve and showcase the alluring black currant and cherry fruit flavors resplendent in grapes grown in the Central Coast.
