Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2009-04-11

Vinted on April 11, 2009 under twitter, wine mini-reviews
  • Veuve Clicquot Brut “Yellow Label” (Champagne): Well-balanced green apples and yeasty bread, & still quite worthy of the heady reputation. #
  • 07 Rosa D’Oro Muscat Canelli (Lake COunty, CA): Intense lemon, green grape, & blistering citrus acid that just screams for a crab salad. #
  • 07 Rosa D’Oro Sangiovese (Lake County, CA): Nice balance of dried red fruit and “puckery” structure. Not from Chianti? Could’ve fooled me… #
  • 08 Estancia Riesling (Monterey County): No mistaking this is from a warmer climate. Apples & peach dominate (but with a hint of honey). #
  • 06 Paso Creek Cabernet Sauvignon (Paso Robles): Concentrated dark cherry, almost sweet. Fruity, yes. Complex, no. #
  • 07 Jackson-Triggs Proprietor’s Reserve Icewine (Niagara): Like liquid mango sorbet, except it goes with fruit tart & can get you buzzed. #

  • 07 ZD Chardonnay (Napa): A buttery vanilla muffin w/ pineapple jam. If that doesn’t sound appealing, then you’d better stay far, far away. #
  • 07 Estancia Chardonnay (Monterey): Very easy-going, like a bowl yogurt with tropical fruits mixed in. An oak bowl, that is. #
  • 07 Recanati “Yasmin” Red Mevushal (Jezreel): Kosher Israeli Bord’x blend. Very red, very fruity, very tasty, and very inexpensive. Score! #
  • 07 Rosa D’Oro Refosco (CA): Inky black, violets & leather-laden N. Italian grape in the crafty hands of a talented CA family outfit. #
  • 07 Recanati Chardonnay (Galilee): Lemony acidity & a hint of nuts. I can taste all 9 months of the sur lie aging – you’d better be into oak. #

Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2009-03-28

Vinted on March 28, 2009 under twitter, wine mini-reviews
  • 07 Sebeka Shiraz Pinotage “Cape Blend” (Western Cape, SA): Jammy red fruit w/ just enough game-meat funk to keep things from getting boring. #
  • 07 Sebeka Chardonnay (Western Cape, SA): Uncomplicated mix of melons & pear. A great option for mid-day party fare for the price point. #
  • 05 Recanati Reserve Petite Sirah / Zinfandel (Galilee, Israel): Dark blackberry jam, spice & pepper. New world style, old (old) world place. #
  • 06 Mondavi Private Selection Zinfandel (CA): Not bad, but sort of like the way a Pinto was “not bad.” #
  • 07 Lorentz Gewurztraminer (Alsace): Good lychee aroma & very good balance. Can someone take my car keys please… #

  • 07 Willakenzie Estate Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley): Tough vintage & it shows. Classic OR is there, but is subdued by oak. Needs time. #
  • 06 Gainey Vineyards Pinot Noir (Santa Rita Hills): Like a smoked wood basket full of just about every red berry in the brier patch. #
  • 06 Sonoma Coast Peterson Vineyard Pinot Noir: Elegant & complex. Smoke, dark cherry, earth, etc. Worth the $ & already drinking beautifully. #
  • 07 Martin Codax Albarino (Rias Baixas): With all that awesome dried banana, you’ll think you’re drinking Trader Joe’s tropical trail mix. #
  • 05 Concha y Toro Marques de Casa Concha Cab Sauv (Puente Alto): Smoke, prune, fig & nice silky finish. Not sure it’s one for the cellar tho. #
