Lake Michigan Shore Syrah 2012


Still going strong - now showing same black & blue fruits w/subtle hi-tone note along w/many secondary flavors of minerals, graphite, savory, forest floor and white pepper. Def northern Rhone vibe here, teeth staining, inky brooding & powerfully built, grippy - still can’t believe it’s from Mi — a month ago

Interesting to see more wines being made away from the traditional strongholds in the USA.


Bob: indeed - it’s like the proliferation of microbreweries, there is so much good wine being produced in places you don’t realize had that capability. I travel frequently and try to find gems in out of the way places

Verterra Winery

Pinot Blanc 2018

A really nice wine from Verterra, who in my opinion is one of the best producers in Michigan. This one seems to have a slight trace of residual sugar. Doesn’t work so well just below room temp, but cool it down and it really comes into balance. Had it with cream cheese-stuffed jalapeños with a sweet Thai chili sauce. Excellent. Highly recommend this winery. — 25 days ago

Dry, mineral notes while maintaining some nice round fruitiness on the palate. Very enjoyable. — a month ago
