Hermann J. Wiemer Lemberger 2016: $29 Very Good

The Hermann J. Wiemer Lemberger (Seneca Lake, Finger Lakes, NY) 2016 $29 [Very Good] is a sleek wine, with warm red and black fruit, a bottle to drink by the fireside with friends.  It should be a crowd pleaser.  Sip this wine with cheese or serve with dinner.

Light ruby in color, the aromas feature ripe and warm red and black fruit, nut oils, tobacco, pepper and hints of lead pencil.  Full bodied, very satiny and mouth filling, with medium intense firm tannin, balance is very good.  Flavors of ripe red and black fruit, nut oils, tobacco, pepper and earth are pure and well concentrated.  The finish shows some light bitter and lead pencil notes as the fruit fades.  Length is good, and the wine ends on a light bitter note.  January 2018
