Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

2019 was a year of surprisingly intense reds, and our Lemberger does not disappoint!   As one comes to expect from the grape, its beauty in the glass is as if rubies and garnets had a baby!  In its youth, not as smoky as we expect it to be in time, the aroma is still quite heady, exhibiting almost perfume-y pomegranate with the gentlest hint of tobacco.  This well balanced, medium bodied wine opens on the palate with bright red fruit: a variety of red berries and pomegranate, with the gentlest zest of rhubarb.  Finishing, we find the hints of tobacco, graphite and white pepper of a true Lemberger.

Vintage Notes

Winter of 2018-19 was pretty mild, resulting in little to no bud damage and setting us up for a good year of growing to come.  2019 started with a pretty “by the books” finger lakes spring, with an on-time start to the growing season; no late frosts to hassle us and a reasonable amount of rainfall.  The growing season was warm but not hot, with moderate rain which tapering off by the fall to a nice mild harvest season.  The weather cooperated well and allowed the vines to achieve full ripeness and flavor development.  Overall, a solid growing season finished with a nice easy, harvest.
