McManis Syrah (2007)

It is Sunday evening and we are home from a three-day vacation with our sons, Tommy and Tony.  We had such a wonderful time hiking a 10-mile route on Lake Superior (National Shoreline) and seeing the magificent pictured rocks from the shoreline. So beautiful! I have some pictures and I’ll see if I am able to post any of them.

Now we are home. We have picked up Trigger who stayed (happily) with our friends, Jeanie & Vinny (and their dog, Snoopy, and cat, Pumpkin). Life is getting back to normal.

I purchased this wine from one of our favorite wine shops,  A & L Wine Castle in Ann Arbor.  This wine has a powerful finish. . .the finish is the point in which you will really experience this wine even though the nose and the initial sips are luscious and lovely. The wine is rich with boysenberry and soft in the mouth. The finish is very dominant with pine needles and licorice.

I am making soup for dinner because it is a cold night in Michigan. Plus, it snowed in Northern Michigan while we were there on our hike! Snowed!! October 10 and 11! So, I have a pot of vegetable soup on the stove. I am also making some whole wheat/flax seed rolls.
