Tasting Notes:

Aromas of fresh blackberries, raspberry jam, and a suggestion of black pepper are followed by rich plum and red cherry flavors that evolve to sweet vanilla. Moderate tannins mark this as an excellent food wine.

Vineyard Notes:

2015 saw a lot of see-saw weather, with the growing season starting off cool and wet. The sun emerged for good in mid-summer, giving the vines the boost they needed to fully ripen the grapes. Harvest proceeded on schedule, and we were able to produce small quantities of very tasty wine with all varieties.

Production Notes:

Grapes were machine picked at dawn, and were immediately crushed into open-top fermentation vessels. Our favorite yeast strain was added, and fermentation began within 24 hours. At dryness, the grapes were pressed to a stainless steel tank. After several days of settling, the wine was transferred to a mixture of French and American oak barrels. Following a year of aging in oak, the wine was bulked up to a stainless steel tank, filtered and bottled.

Winemaker Notes:

Vineyard Site: Fox Run Vineyards Blocks 2, 6 and 9

Food Pairing:

Rich, full bodied and smooth, it is unrivaled as an accompaniment to tenderloin of beef.

Production:

772 cases

Other Notes:

One of the Finger Lakes' strongest red grapes, Lemberger presents exceptionally well as a young wine and also has serious aging potential.
