Bowers Harbor Vineyards – Traverse City 7/14/08
Bowers Harbor Vineyards
This place was run by a couple women who were very friendly and talkative – we liked them a lot.
2007 Gewürztraminer – spiced apricot nose / light peach, somewhat dry, and overall quite mild.
2004 Cabernet Franc – earthy nose / the palate here is funky with a fair amount of garbage...
2005 Cabernet Franc – a more herbal nose / earthy mouth with some cherry, nice firm tannins.
Bowers Harbor Red – a Cabernet Franc/Merlot blend – earth, cherry, and cinnamon on the nose / fairly light, nice acid mild cherry with a bit of spice.
2004 Pinot Noir – a mild nose with mostly earth / a bit of cherry, nothing here suggests Pinot Noir really.
2005 2896, Langley Vineyard – menthol nose / very nice body, smooth, black cherry, plum, blackberries, and firm tannins.
