Standing Stone Pinnacle


In my cellar still I have some old Pinnacle reds from Standing Stone. They have always been among my most favorite east coast reds. And I can tell you the quality is there because they have fared well in the glass after extensive cellar aging.

This last tasting was no disappointment. The 2005 and 2006 were each exceptional. I bought equal amounts of both for the cellar, though you could drink them now. They're great. Pinnacle is still stellar among the dry reds of the region. Classy. Sophisiticated.

Tom & Marti Macinski, the owners, should be very proud!
