Vintage Columbia Valley Lemberger

Vintage Columbia Valley Lemberger Wine Details
Price: $16.00 per bottle

Description: Thirty hours after crush we removed 1/3 of the juice to make our Rose', leaving all the skins with the remaining ferment. The result of the concentrated pigments and flavors contributed by the skins is an increase in the wonderful varietal character. Very nice, soft and fruity red wine with delicate pipe tobacco on the first nose. Taste is fruit forward with a very soft but long finish including sweet basil and tarragon that you will simply love. This is an excellent example of what Lemberger grapes can do in Washington state.

Varietal Definition
