Wine Tasting on Michigan's Old Mission Peninsula: Peninsula Cellars

This is by no means a new winery, but somehow Peninsula Cellars wines have passed me by. Glad I stopped by the tasting room; there are some good wines here, worth trying and buying.

2012 Pinot Blanc ($17.99): Of all the Pinot Blancs I tasted today, this is probably my favorite. Clean lines, good acidity, pear and citrus flavors.

2012 Manigold Gewurztraminer ($19.99): Very dry for a Gewurztraminer and without the hallmark barbershop qualities but very appealing. Full bodied, floral, spicy, very strong grapefruit qualities.

2011 Cabernet Franc: Very oaky--coffee and chocolate. Cherry/berry flavors. Lush and fairly full bodied for a Cab Franc. Not for lovers of Loire Valley Cab Franc but has some appeal.
