Chateau Grand Traverse 1998 Old Mission Peninsula Whole Cluster Johannisberg Riesling - Pale straw. Good clean white fruit and a mineral edge; just off-dry with steely acidity to balance. Excellent Riesling, fine with a lightly curried lentil salad.
Michel Ogier 1998 "La Rosine" Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes Syrah - From a vineyard adjacent to Cote-Rotie but outside the appellation, this qualifies only for the Vin de Pays designation, but it could have fooled me with its Cote-Rotie-like character. Dark ruby; peppery, smoky black fruit, ripe and structured. Excellent with lamb shanks.
Chateau Grand Traverse 1985 Michigan Select Harvest Dry Riesling - Intriguing. Delicious complex scents of petrol and caramel; good white fruit framed by piercing acidity.
Chateau Grand Traverse 1999 Old Mission Peninsula Johannisberg Riesling Ice Wine - Pale brass color. Creme brulee and mandarin oranges. Intensely sweet, sufficient acidity. Delicious.
