Keuka Spring Lemberger 2016: $19 Very Good

The Keuka Spring Lemberger (Finger Lakes, NY) 2016 $19 [Very Good] shows the ripeness of the 2016 vintage.  Round and soft, with tasty ripe fruit, this wine is very quaffable.  Have it with dinner or snacks.

Light ruby in color, the aromas feature ripe black cherry fruit, vanilla, milk chocolate, black pepper and a hint of bitter greens.  Medium to full bodied, quite soft, with light tannin, balance is very good.  Round and easy-going flavors of ripe black cherry, milk chocolate, ferrous mineral, black pepper and earth have good focus and concentration.  This wine is very easy to drink.  The finish is seamless and balanced, with good length.  September 2017
