Boskydel Vineyards Leelanau Peninsula Vignoles, 2009
This is another look at an old favorite: Bernie Rink's dry Vignoles from the Leelanau Peninsula of Michigan. It's probably not quite as brisk or enjoyable as the previous bottle, but Vignoles is a keeper, and I'm confident this wine's best years are ahead of it. Vignoles grapefruit and apples, brisk but with a full Chardonnay-like body. Needs some coaxing but has a full range of smells and flavors.
