Pinnacle with bernie

Leaping Lizard Chardonnay 2010 rough around the edges.. nothing smooth about it.. not a fan

Arizona Stronghold Mandala 2010.. White rhone blend but mostly Viognier which is evident from the beginning.. american viognier is almost like Gewurztraminer.. in nose especially.. some viscosity.. a pretty wine..

Arizona Stronghold Mandala 2010 red blend.. mostly Cinsault ... pretty floral nose, good juice and long finish.. very nice..

Arizona Stronghold Dala Cabernet Sauvignon 2010... dala means one in apache speak.. a tight nose but dark fruits on the palate with lots of fruit tannin.. still young

Penner Ash Pinot Noir 2009  lush fruit on the palate... good weight and length of finish.. red berries coming through..a little less Burgundian to me...but definitely good
