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!
BEST OF CLASS, Gold Medal: 2021 New York Wine Classic (2018 vintage)
Limited Production: Only 279 Cases
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! Grapes grown near Seneca Lake, in a vineyard located in what's known as the "banana belt" for its warmer microclimate!
