In 2007 Eric Glomski (Owner/Director of Winemaking at Page Springs Cellars and previously Winemaker at David Bruce Winery) and Maynard Keenan (Owner of Caduceus Cellars, founder of the alternative rock group Tool and a descendant of Northern Italian winemakers) formed a partnership and launched Arizona Stronghold Vineyards. Together they transformed the aging Dos Cabezas Vineyard near Willcox, Arizona into a top notch, high quality effort. The core of the red plantings is Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Tempranillo and Sangiovese with Viognier and Malvasia Bianca anchoring the white plantings. (Several other varietals also supplement these grapes.) Stronghold’s goal is to put fine Arizona wine on tables throughout the United States.
Tasting notes
Arizona Stronghold TAZI vine ages are from seven totwenty-five years, which include Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Malvasia Bianca. The Chardonnay, picked early adds body and texture to the blend. The Sauvignon Blanc contributes acidity and freshness. Riesling boosts the fruit characters, mandarin orange, apricot, lemon peel , of the wine as well as the finish. Malvasia is all about aromatics. This TAZI is both fruity and floral, deep and complex, at times revealing, in other instances, elusive. This is quintessential Arizona. 764 CASES MADE.

Wine maker notes
Arizona Stronghold is planted to five white varietals ranging in ages from seven to twenty-five years. Four of these five, which include Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Malvasia Bianca, all play part in TAZI. The Chardonnay, although picked early to avoid too much softness, adds body and texture to the blend. The Sauvignon Blanc contributes acidity and freshness. Riesling certainly boosts the fruit characters of the wine as well as the finish. Malvasia is all about aromatics. This vino-quattro is both fruity and floral, deep and complex, at times revealing, in other instances, elusive.

Other text
Aged in a mixture of stainless steel and neutral oak, this wine shows best at cellar temperature – about 58 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. If over chilled, the Sauvignon Blanc tends to dominate and the wine is sharper. With a little more warmth, the mandarin orange from the Riesling and the floral, tropical flavors from the Malvasia shine. Like all serious wines, time in the glass also helps this wine to open up like the peeling of petals from a flower. This is quintessential Arizona.
