Detroit Free Press Wine & Food Experience

The Detroit Free Press stopped by our table at the Detroit Free Press Wine & Food Experience and reported on our offering: “…An attendee favorite was the grape appetizer created by the team at wine bar Vertical Detroit. The delectable item was rolled in Brie and pistachio and was so tasty that tables full of people in the Grand Tasting area were talking them up long after the noshing. …”

Domaine Didier Dagueneau 2012 Pouilly Fumé “Silex”

Retail Wine of the Week:
Domaine Didier Dagueneau
2012 Pouilly Fumé “Silex”

TASTING NOTES FROM BRANDON MCKAY
Vertical Detroit – Server

“The “Silex” from Domaine Didier Dagueneau is one of my go to summer whites, and 2012 was a truly exceptional vintage. The winemaker utilizes biodynamic farming methods as well as barrel fermentation to craft this incredible small production wine. The wine has concentrated notes of apricot with hints of grapefruit. It has great minerality and crushed stone flavors balanced with a strong backbone of acidity. I would suggest this wine with seafood, grilled vegetables, or traditional Lebanese mezza.”

Retail Wine of the Week!

CAYUSE VINEYARDS
2014 Syrah – Cailloux Vineyard
Walla Walla, Washington
*Also Available 2013 Vintage


TASTING NOTES FROM KYLE MILLER

Vertical Detroit – Server & Wine Enthusiast

“This wine comes highly rated from both Robert Parker & Wine Enthusiast, receiving almost perfect scores. Syrah is one of my favorite grape varietals because of its versatility. It has the capability to represent either side of the spectrum from light to full bodied. The 2014 vintage is remarkably rich and complex with notes of tobacco and white pepper with dark cherry and black currant on palate. This would be the ideal pairing for the tomahawk steak or duck confit at Vertical Detroit!”

TASTING NOTES FROM RÉMY LUTFY

“Located the in the Chassagne – Montrachet Appellation, Domaine Morey – Coffinet is known crafting exceptional white wines. The 2015 Domaine Morey – Coffinet, Bourgogne Blanc showcases everything that Burgundy has to offer, it has great minerality and a mind-blowing purity to the fruit on palate.

CHÂTEAU RAYAS
2003 Châteauneuf-du-Pape

TASTING NOTES FROM KARL THALACKER
Vertical Detroit – Bar Manager

“The 2003 Château Rayas is a legendary wine from a truly legendary producer. Produced from 100% Grenache, the wine really showcases the pureness of the grape. The wine is lush and elegant with notes of black raspberry and kirsch. This is an incredibly food friendly wine due to its high acid and would be perfect paired alongside lighter meats like pork tenderloin or grilled chicken but would also be wonderful paired with heartier fishes.”

TASTING NOTES FROM RÉMY LUTFY
Vertical Detroit – Owner & Wine Lover

“Jeff Pisoni from the renowned Pisoni Family has created something truly special in this wine. The Pisoni Family is excited about their commitment to give back with this wine by donating $1 from every bottle sold to breast cancer aid and research. This rosé produced entirely of estate grown pinot noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. The wine is crisp and has great acid, with delightful notes of strawberry and cherry on the palate. Enjoy this rosé with lighter fare, a selection of cheese & charcuterie or on its own on a warm spring evening… if they ever arrive. The 2017 LUCY is the breath of spring that we are longing for.”
