Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2009-10-31

Vinted on October 31, 2009 under wine mini-reviews
  • 07 Agur Kessem (Judean Hills): Dark red fruits abound in this kosher Bord'x belnd, but the PV comes off harsher than the dessert sands. #
  • 07 Leitz Dragonstone Riesling (Rheingau): Big on fruit, flowers & RS, low in alcohol. Is this really from the Rheingau? Could've fooled me. #
  • 05 Chaddsford Due Rossi (PA): A game of hide and seek. As in, you want to seek out the bright red fruit, but it's hiding behind some smoke. #
  • 08 Chaddsford Proprietor's Reserve Red (PA): Could be aptly renamed 'Strawberry Fields Forever'. Except that they'd probably get sued… #
  • 08 Chaddsford Riesling (Lake Erie): Actually a blend, but it all comes together into a big green apple. And it's hungry for Chinese food. #
  • 07 Folie a Deux Merlot (Napa Valley): Nice overall, but makes promises (plum & chocolate) that 2 hours later it can't keep (cherry cola). #
  • 07 Rancho Zabaco Sonoma Heritage Vines Zinfandel (Sonoma County): A blueberry roundhouse kicks your face, then sprinkles some pepper on it. #

  • 08 Bonny Doon Ca' del Solo Albarino (Monterey County): Bright grapefruit, but hit this with salty Asian food & it's all tangerine goodness. #
  • 08 Grapes of Roth Riesling (Long Island): If you like lime, this one has 1/2 the orchard in it. A wine for good times (and spicy food). #
  • 05 Snows Lake One (Lake County, CA): Cab with enough dried prune to keep a retirement home regular for a week. I mean that in a good way! #
  • 05 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon (Alexander Valley): Hot damn, dark fruit & eucalyptus? All that & a bag o' chips. Sign me up for this! #
  • 07 4 Bears Chardonnay (Central Coast): A little heavy on the butter, but also heavy on the sweet n' tasty tropical fruit goodness. #
  • 07 Trumpeter Malbec (Mendoza): With those pepper notes, the QPR is off the charts. A note worth playing for under $9. #

  • 05 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Call the cops, because someone stole the finish from this – it's criminally short. #

Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2009-10-10

Vinted on October 10, 2009 under wine mini-reviews
  • 07 Davis Bynum Chardonnay (Russian River Valley): U might be able to approximate this by stuffing a croissant into a glass of grain alcohol. #
  • 07 Davis Bynum Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley): Enormous ultra-concentrated offering. Red berry fruit is nice but is fighting for its life #
  • 04 Heron Hill Eclipse Red (NY): Call it Bord'x Light. Will pair w/ quite a few dishes, but I expected a little more Cab Franc bang for the $ #
  • 05 Da Vinci Chiani Classico: Tough vintage. Lacking some focus, but the black cherry, spice & Old World earthiness more than make up for it. #
  • 08 Castell Silvaner Trocken (Franken): Fresh & clean as your Auntie's kitchen counter. Maybe too clean. Go for lighter foods with this guy. #
  • 06 Castell Kugelspiel Silvaner (Franken): Someone spiced up a banana & stuck it in the flower garden! And it's pretty darn tasty! #
  • 08 Castell Trautberg Silvaner / Traminer (Franken): Starts w/ an acid scream, rests on some lychee nuts, then heads of on the mineral trail. #
