87pointsChateau Grand Traverse 2012 Reserve Gamay (Old Mission Peninsula)

While there are not many acres of Gamay in Michigan, it seems to be an viable addition to the rows of Pinot throughout the the state's two northern AVAs. From a warmer vintage, this wine shows plenty of red cherry and strawberry alongside lightly toasted vanilla. While juicy and snappy, a light dusting of tannins offers just enough support.
