The 2018 J. Lohr Tower Road Petite Sirah adds small amounts of Syrah and Grenache, and for the first time, utilizes the Northern Rhône technique of including Viognier in the blend as well. The wine is bright and energetic with aromas of cranberry, olallieberry, and coconut shell. It's delightful with tart red and blue fruit on the palate, followed by exquisite length, concentration, and an interesting floral character.
