Chateau de Leelanau – 2010 Pinot Noir

This Gold Medal winning Pinot does not disappoint. It’s raw and earthy, on the cusp of ripeness, just as it should be. Fruity on the nose and palate, with hints of leather, black licorice, and wild cherry. The finish is dry and complete, making you want another sip. You will be completely satisfied! Cheers to great Michigan Pinot!

Fling by Silver Leaf Vineyard & Winery

Have a Fling. It’s a sassy Rosé with a super sassy label, ok, I’m partial, the label features my Goddess of Wine Artwork, I’m very honored. The wine is fantastic and would be Fling worthy even without the label! Fling is a very well balanced semi-sweet Rosé. Being one who leans towards a more dry wine, I was very pleased with Fling’s structure. It is well balanced and complex enough to carry it’s sweet in a way that isn’t about the sugars but about a really great wine. This is the wine I’ll be serving with my Thanksgiving turkey, but until then I’ll be pouring it with spicy foods, and per the vineyards recommendation cheeses, salads and yummy portabella.

Cheers!
