Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For September 26, 2016

Vinted on September 26, 2016 binned in wine mini-reviews

So, like, what is this stuff, anyway?
I taste a bunch-o-wine (technical term for more than most people). So each week, I share some of my wine reviews (mostly from samples) and tasting notes with you via twitter (limited to 140 characters). They are meant to be quirky, fun, and easily-digestible reviews of currently available wines. Below is a wrap-up of those twitter wine reviews from the past week (click here for the skinny on how to read them), along with links to help you find these wines, so that you can try them for yourself. Cheers!

  • 11 Cecchi Coevo (Toscana): A delicious, delicate, and doggedly determined take on the Super Tuscan vibe, which needs juice like this $100 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 13 Troon Estate Tannat (Applegate Valley): It's only a short trip from Oregon to Uruguay, if traveling via this smoky, tangy ride. $28 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 12 Susana Balbo Signature Cabernet Sauvignon (Mendoza): Lip-smacking tanginess & dark richness, all in search of dry-rubbed ribs. $25 B+ >>find this wine<<
