pinnacle wines with craig and his boss bill kneip

Wein Prum Feinherb Riesling 2009  feinherb is the new halbtrocken or half dry. this riesling is slatey on the nose..light green apples on the palate...soft acidity

Von Hovel Estate Riesling 2008  very light color... light on the palate... and easy drinking riesling for sure.. has been in the market for a long time

Peay Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2009... the best pinot vintage ever....lots of depth in color and flavor... with a tea and tobacco hinted finish.. long finish

Novy Russian River Zinfandel 2009..juicy... a touch hot on the palate.. good fruit..some pepper and a long finish. not briary at all

Ramey Cabernet Sauvignon 2007.. high extraction in the color... good fruit... missing something on the middle it seemed but the finish came on strong with the last 10 seconds changing wine.
