Fox Run Lemberger 2014: $21 Very Good

The Fox Run Vineyards Lemberger (Finger Lakes, NY) $21 [Very Good] is an open-knit easy-drinking wine with good berry fruit flavors and interesting notes of cream soda and cola.  It is best with food.

Medium to medium dark ruby, the aromas are lithe, focused, and fresh, with scents of black and red berries accented by sweet cola, vanilla, fig and black pepper.  Medium bodied, with tangy peppery acidity and light grippy tannin, balance is good.  Flavors of red and black berries, cream soda / cola, vanilla, spice and black pepper have good concentration and focus.  The finish turns rather gritty with good length.  October 2016.
