Still sober. Interesting wine tonight. This was a late harvest Riesling c.2003 from Zafarana Vineyard , located in the Old Mission Peninsula near Traverse City. 2003 was a very short and low quality season so the vineyard owner decided to scout out other local vineyards for a blended wine of similar grape character.
This was my first venture into a late harvest wine. It was sweeter than I thought it would be, but with the spicy New Orleans style pasta I had for dinner, it was very complimentary on the tongue. I picked up pear/apricot with a tinge of apple . This would also be great as an after-dinner wine and is modestly priced at about $11.00. It's only for sale in Michigan for some odd reason. I don't understand the Michigan wine laws one bit!
