    Re: What wine are you drinking? Summer 2009

    A few months ago I discovered that the local Meijer had a half shelf full of 2-4 y/o Rielslings and GewŁztraminers from Covey Run and Columbia Crest. All priced $8-10 too.

    I've been enjoying all these all summer. Now I'm having a glass of the 2006 Covery Run
    Riesling. Very nice and light, but a bit of pear. Very tasty, and going down quickly.

    I've been enjoying a very nice crisp and dry Llano Estacado Sauvignon Blanc from the Texas Panhandle.

    O, your post here confirms that that the craziness is affecting you. That WLW'll straighten you out, though!

    On day two of touring around wineries in the Finger Lakes. So far have 12 bottles from 8 or so winieries. And we skipped more than half of them! Not including the stop at Niagara on the Lake en route to NY.

    I have a feeling lots of those will be showing up her very soon.

    Hoping to do some dusty hunting too, but not a lot of luck yet.

    With supper last night I had a 2003 Cab Franc from Lakewood Vineyards on the southwest end of Seneca Lake. Very good. The Mrs. had a 2007 Cab Franc from Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars on the east side of the lake.

    Cab Franc seems to grow really well in the northeast, much better than Cab Sauv. We've had lots of good ones here and back home in Michigan. As for the other vinifera reds, not so much (yet?).

    Hmmm, yeah I see.

    I'm drinking a lot of Columbia Crest Two Vines Vineyard 10 in this heat, the white blend and rose'. For today's BBQ I've also pulled out some Laurel Glen REDS, a tasty zin field blend.
    Here's to us, who's like us?

    I don't think I've ever seen either of those. I'll have to keep a look out for them.

    This afternoon I'm sipping a wine a friend brought back from Israel for me, Yarden 2007 Mt Hermon White. It's very refreshing, crisp Chard/Sauv. Blanc blend. Refreshing but robust at 13.5 % abv.

    Re: What wine are you drinking? Summer 2009

    This afternoon I am finishing off a bottle of Honey Wine from Easley Winery in Indianapolis. I don't know what the distinction between a Honey Wine and a Mead is, but this stuff tastes like a mead, but much smoother. Not too bad, but it lacks the honey character of most meads.

    I've also been working on a bottle of Cherise, a fortified cherry dessert wine from Chateau Chantal (Old Mission Penninsula, MI). Pretty good stuff.
