About the Wine -This consistent award-winner is a signature wine for Kiona. Lemberger is a relatively obscure Eastern European grape that is sometimes known as Blaufränkisch. The vine grows exceedingly well on Red Mountain, where we have established the go-to vineyard in Washington for the varietal. We use our premium fruit and extensive experience with the wine to craft an immensely versatile and universally appealing medium-bodied wine with plenty of style.
Tasting Notes - This bright, medium-bodied, fruit-forward wine surprises many with its unique characteristics. Kiona’s Estate Lemberger sports a blackberry pepper nose and a vibrant, well-balanced palate along with plenty of earth and spice that showcases Red Mountain’s unique terroir. This is not stinky cheese! Winemakers Scott Williams and Glen Fukuyama prove that big tannins are not necessary to make an intense, complex red wine.
