T-Red Lemberger

T-Red (Lemberger) Wine Details
Price: $12.99 per bottle

Description: Tyrannosaurus Red (or T-Red) is crafted from 100% Colorado-grown Lemberger grapes, a German grape that thrives in our Rocky Mountain vineyards. It is a dry, medium-bodied red wine that is slightly oaked. T-Red is named after the discovery of dinosaur bones in the early 1900s in the Grand Valley. Years later, the massive T-Rex skeleton on display at the Chicago Field Museum made a big impression on a young Parker Carlson...

Varietal Definition
Also known as the Blauer Limberger or Limberger. The latter name is used for the grape where found in Washington state in the U.S., which has sizable plantings of this variety at last report.


Todd says...
This is a great medium -> full bodied Lemberger. It has a strong berry nose and taste with a long, spicy finish. It is a great alternative to Syrah.
