Grafen Neipperg Lemberger Trocken 2013

Bright raspberry, cranberry, blueberry skin, vanilla bean, dusty minerals and a distinct spicyness on the back end  of the savory nose. Clean and pure with cranberry joining the scents on the light bodied palate. A crisp, lifting acidity carries the cranberry and mineral flavors for minutes  on the dry finish.  This is extremely well balanced, well made German Lemberger. It’s definitely on par with Cru Beuajolais or even Burgundy, and with that a steal for $24.99.

The Lemberger varietal originated in Austria where it is known as Blaufränkisch. This winery was the first to take it to Germany hundreds of years ago. There are a few Washington State wineries that produce this varietal today.
