A Wine in Pennsylvania gets attention!

A good friend of mine brought me a wine that got my attention that I enjoyed.

In Pennsylvania through their Wine Society there are a few wines that are getting noticed through competitions but special note goes to the Vynecrest's 2012 vintage of Lemberger which won Wine Excellence XII, an annual competition that's organized and judged by the Pennsylvania Wine Society.

The key in this competition is only wines made from at least 75 percent Pennsylvania varietals (and Chambourcin which is a grape whose juice is pink or red rather than clear; is a deep-colored and aromatic wine. It can be made into a dry style or fruit forward style)... are allowed to enter.

The wine also contains a good dose of Cabernet Franc.

Seek it out.
