Parting words: According to the LFC website, the grapes that go into Murmur change from vintage to vintage. The 2010 vintage was intended as an homage to the easier-drinking vintages of Vouvray. It does very well in that regard. LFC has done a very good job of blending hybrids with the Riesling and Chard to create that effect.
Murmur is fruity and a bit tart, but with enough body and aroma to keep things interesting. They recommend this wine be consumed young and in the summer time. I didn’t exactly follow that recommendation, but I can tell you that it tastes pretty good at 2+ y/o in the middle of winter. It works fine with a meal but might work better as a before dinner wine or with a cheese course. Murmur 2010 is recommended.

I’ll second that recommendation. I had some and really liked it. I mostly tasted grapefruit, which is ok by me!
I have never tried Michigan Wines, but all you bloggers definitely make it sound great! Looking forward to my first Michigan Wine!
Thanks! My advice: Start with a Riesling.
