Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2009-03-14

Vinted on March 14, 2009 under twitter, wine mini-reviews
  • 07 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc (Malborough, NZ): Grapefruit & lemongrass on the nose, but it’s tropical passion fruit on the tongue. VG stuff #
  • 05 Rued Cabernet Sauvignon (Dry Creek Valley): Like a girl wearing sexy lingerie, only it’s She-Hulk & she’s trying to smash your face in. #
  • 06 Veranda San Alfonso Cabernet-Carmenere (Maipo Valley): Like alcoholic jelly doughnut filling, only 100 X more complex & w/ pine sprinkles #
  • 05 Chaddsford Winery Due Rossi (PA): Barbera-Sangiovese over-achiever that’s > the sum of its parts (tea leaf, red berry, vanilla, & smoke). #
  • 05 Chaddsford Winery Cabernet Sauvignon (PA): Dark cherry & smokey oak gives way to a hint of milk chocolate. Elegant, at a reasonable abv! #
  • 07 Miguel Torres Vendemia Tardia Riesling (Curico Valley): Nice floral nose and a loooong lemony finish. Not too sweet – so pair w/ caution. #
  • 07 Inniskillin Riesling Icewine (Niagra): Like a crystallized sugar-coated candied apricot that you wish you could savor all night long. #

  • 07 Waters Crest Chardonnay (North Folk, LI): Delicate tropical fruit & creme brulee. Careful – the livin’ sh*t has been oaked outta this! #
  • 05 Marc Kreydenweiss Kritt Pinot Blanc “Les Charmes” (Alsace): Citrus & pear, w/ a honeyed finish that seems to last for an hour. Great buy. #
  • 06 Domaine Pierre Morey Aligoté (Burgundy): Someone just shot an acid laser into my mouth! Needs seafood cerviche (the rawer the better). #
  • 05 Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss Perrières (Costières de Nîmes): Brings the barnyard funk, in a good way, w/ dark cherry, leather, & bacon. Yum. #
  • 06 Tenuta di Biserno Insolgio del Cinghiale (Tuscany): Kickin’ blend with tobacco leaf, smoke, & dark jammy fruit. Prepare ye some Bison! #
  • 08 Sebeka Chenin Blanc (Western Cape, SA): Star & tropical fruits, a VG value. Could use more acidity & “oomph”, but whaddya want for $10? #
  • 07 Alamos Seleccion Malbec (Mendoza): From blueberry compote to spiced fruitcake with violets on top. In other words, it kicks total ass! #
  • 05 B Cellars Blend 24 (Napa Valley): Big red fruit, big ol’ tannins, big ol’ booze. Maybe too big, with booze on the finish. Needs a steak. #

  • NV Barefoot Bubbly Brut Cuvee (CA): You could do a lot worse in a sparkler for <$10. Apple dominates. Refreshing, and very uncomplicated. #
  • 06 Waters Crest Cabernet Franc Reserve (North Folk, LI): Tangy blackberries on wet grass. With a side of green peppers. But a little too $$. #
  • 06 Washington Hills Cabernet Sauvignon (WA): Addition of Syrah gives this serious blueberry & blackberry jam action. Almost a steal at $10. #
  • 06 Big Sky Pinot Noir (WA): Named after Montana, made in WA, using Chilean grapes. And it tastes about as coherent as you’d expect from that #
  • 07 Arbor Crest Dionysus Vineyard Riesling (WA): CAUTION: Contents extremely acidic. Do NOT attempt contents of this bottle without food! #
  • 07 Pacific Rim Gewurztraminer (WA): Lighter body & more acidic making a food-friendly match for Asian fare. Passion fruit dominates (yum). #

  • 06 Chateau Fuisse Le Clos (Pouilly-Fuisse): Rich & oaky Chard. Set your alarm, you may need it to wake you up when the finish finally stops! #
  • 05 Nicolas Potel Volnay Vieilles Vignes (Volnay): Berry cobbler w/ bacon. A finish so smooth, you could slip on it. But it sure ain’t free. #
  • 05 JJ Vincent Pouilly Fuisse “Marie Antoinette” (Pouilly-Fuisse): Heavy on the minerality, big on acidty, but light on the fruit & finish. #
  • 06 Undurraga Founder’s Carmenere (Colchagua): Big time dark-red fruits & a heap of green pepper. It’s smooth now, but will it integrate? #
  • 03 Hermann J. Wiemer Ice Wine (Finger Lakes, NY): Honey, apricot, & glycerin-smooth with bracing acidity. I heart New York. #
  • 07 Pio Cesare Dolcetto d’Alba (Piedmont): candied fruit & black cherry, with floral & spice notes. Interesting if not very focused. #
  • 05 Simi Landslide Cabernet Sauvignon (Alexander Valley): More like “Oakslide” with this much wood. Bloated & underwhelming for the price. #
