Lemberger, Old Vines, Vignes de Marcoux Vineyard

Lemberger, Old Vines, Vignes de Marcoux Vineyard Wine Details

Description: One of the oldest blocks of Lemberger standing in the United States, planted in 1979, and from a newly designated vineyard, formerly part of Red Willow Vineyard, these vines look like tree trunks with low vigor and produce naturally lower yields and quite dark thick-skinned berries. This wine’s red garnet color and a red raspberry nose lead you into its wonderful flavors of sweet raspberry, kirsch liquor, raw honey and dried cherry fruit. It shows a focused midpalate and finishes long and seamless into jammy fruits along with ripe tannins and balanced natural acids. We feel this wine is proof to the notion we have that you’ll get larger proportions and considerable complexities from Lemberger fruit produced from mature vines. Drink now for its intense and lush fruit, but this wine, with all its stuffing, is expected to age well compared to your average and less complex Lemberger. 210 cases produced. Try with lemon-butter basted barbecue chicken.
