Limited Edition Library Wine
This wine is sold at our Lake George Tasting Room & Queensbury Tasting Room. It is also available for shipping or pickup orders.
What is a Library Wine?
In 2014, we began setting aside four cases of our best dry varietal wines, each of that particular vintage year. Stored in the proper conditions (in a cool, dark place, arranged on their side), just for you, we have been saving four cases of each ever since!
How did we decide which wines to put in the Library?
There's a different and special reason for choosing a library wine – whether we had only created a limited supply or the wine sold out too quickly, it was immensely popular or it won a particularly notable award in its vintage year. Each wine is chosen for a unique reason.
VERY limited release. Only 4 cases available!
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!
Best in Class at the New York Wine Classic
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.
Food Pairing Notes
Try this versatile red wine with BBQ, pizza, smoked cheeses, and chocolate desserts.
