12% abv | sample - Garnet red color. Needs a lot of air. Quite green and sharp on the nose with green pepper and black fruits on the palate. Sell sheet indicates the lemberger was picked at 20.1˚ Brix and the cab franc at 22.9˚ Brix. "Fermentation was conducted at high temperatures," according to the sell sheet. Peppery.

2013 Cab Franc/Lemberger
This red blend has notes of plum and pepper on the nose, with a refreshing balanced acidity and cranberry fruitiness on the tongue.

Dry but not tannic. Really good with pasta and tomato sauce. As recommended by Ryan's
