bommarito with cynthia

Talley Vineyards Chardonnay Arroyo Grande Valley 2012... dept of redundancy dept.. arroyo is a valley... valley large valley... my rant.. soft oak influence but defintitely there... nice acidity... not over the top tropical fruit.

MacPhail Family Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2012.. from the Hess family.. to take the place of Sequana.. fruity cranberry on the nose that carries through to finish.. not giving me a lot of earth or mushroom.. very user friendly

A Rafanelli Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Sonoma County 2011... a little frustrating because this is a restaurant only wine but.... very juicy and berry full.. full bodied on the palate that thins out a little on the finish. 

Krupp Brothers  The Doctor Napa Valley 2011.. yummy  good berry fruit lots of flavors.. a little too obvious on the oak.. may just be the youth.. vanilla cherry...
