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 tannic, earthy finish. An excellent wine for aging in your wine cellar!

Lemberger was an outlier on our crush pad for the 2018 harvest season, defying the drought conditions, heat and humidity that challenged other grapes. The body of this year’s vintage is unique with the strong presence of acidity yet equal amounts of tannin to provide exceptional balance.
