Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This unique, dry red wine was aged in American toasted oak barrels for 15 months, creating a luscious medium body with a beautiful garnet hue. Offering enticing oak and spicy clove notes on the nose, this wine follows through with the pleasant acidity of dark black currants and a touch of pepper spice, followed by a lingering tanic, earthy finish. An excellent wine for aging in your wine cellar!

Winemaker Notes
Lemberger was an outlier on our crush pad for the 2018 harvest season, defying the drought conditions, heat and humidity that challenged other grapes. Being a new grape for us, Lemberger came with excitement; but the final verdict would not be known for 15 months as we aged the wine in American Oak Barrels in our Barrel Room. Once blended, Lemberger developed into a robust red wine with great color and a smooth oaky finish!
Food Pairing Notes
Try this versatile red wine with BBQ, pizza, smoked cheeses, and chocolate desserts.

Not usually a dry red drinker, but I do love oaky wines. Had this chilled with some homemade chili, it was a very good nice pairing.

Love this wine! It has a unique flavor profile, with the body of a Pinot Noir, but with more spice. 5 out of 5!
