Dry Riesling 2020

Classic dry Riesling, hints of petroleum, lemony citrus and minerals. Aftertaste lingers. Around here it’s hard to find dry Riesling which is always a pleasure to discover a good one. — 3 months ago

Tabor Hill

Grand Mark Methode Champenoise Chardonnay Blend

Made nice Father’s Day mimosas, finished the rest with dinner tonight. A little sweeter than our usual preference, but after hiding in the cellar forgotten for over a decade, turned out really nice. — 3 years ago

Late Harvest Michigan Riesling 2021


Had it on ice with oranges, limes and lemons. Forgot the club soda. Still good. Great summer day on the boat with @Jeni 😎 — 7 months ago

Select Semidry Riesling

Nice Riesling, although I personally consider this more of a sweeter wine. It’s easy to drink. — 4 years ago


Barrel Aged Series CBS Imperial Stout 2019

2019 edition. A little thin compared to prior years. Might be due to the relatively weak/disappointing 2019 KBS base. Nevertheless, the bourbon and maple syrup are both present and water nice. The alcohol is well balanced, it doesn't feel hot at all like other imperial stouts. — 4 years ago


KBS Chocolate Coffee Stout 2015

2015 bottling. I don’t really drink stuff like this much anymore but this was very well made and delicious. — 5 years ago

Chateau Grand Traverse

Reserve Gamay Noir 2012

Holding up pretty well. 26 months in oak seemed like a lot, and the wine has loads of charred oak tannin but it’s hard to argue with the structure it has at 10 years. — 2 years ago

Founders Brewing Company

Double Trouble IPA

It’s been three years since my last review of this little slice of double trouble. Loose and thorny crown of creamy white with cartoon bone lacing plus bubble font. Golden overall, but reddish tinges turn it pink. Banana bread, with honey butter, a bit of molasses and orange marmalade scented, but the breakfast stops there. Healthy dollops of of honey buoy herbs de Provence, golden apple, juniper sharpness, lemon-arabica, pecan, and extra lavender. .
