Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2009-10-03

Vinted on October 3, 2009 under wine mini-reviews
  • 06 Harney Lane Lizzy James Viney'd Old Vine Zinfandel (Lodi): There's you, there's the dried cherry, but what's with the 3% Petite Sirah? #
  • 06 Bonny Doon CA' Del Solo Sangiovese (San Benito County): It might be cherry Rock, but it's Funk-infused cherry Rock (& a bargain to boot). #
  • 08 Torbreck Cuvee Juveniles (Barossa Valley): Nose = Berry good. Taste = Berry good. Finish = Berry rough. Worth a look for GSM fanatics. #
  • 08 SA Prüm Essence Riesling (Mosel): An international take on the Mosel stalwart. Cheap, food-friendly, and downright green-apple-delicious. #
  • 07 SA Prüm 'Prüm Blue' Riesling Kabinett (Mosel): Like flowers growing through a patch of gravel. In a stream. On a grapefruit mountain (?) #
  • 07 SA Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett (Mosel): As squeaky clean as mineral water. As good & complex as Mosel Riesling gets. #
  • 06 SA Prüm Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett (Mosel): Sexy, like Daisy Duke wearing SHORT shorts & wiping the gasoline off of her hands #

  • 05 Bonny Doon Le Cigare Volant (CA): A bombastic, bold, balanced & beautiful biodynamic BD. A minor triumph & a glimpse of CA's wine future. #
  • 08 Hazard Hill Semillon Sauvignon Blanc (W. Australia): Yee-haw! Saddle up on them thar lemons & ride `em with pride! Vibrant & inexpensive. #
  • 07 Bridlewood Monterey County Chardonnay: Mandarin oranges & apple slices balanced on the booze & acid axis. Not too shabby at all for $15 ! #
  • 05 Bridlewood Syrah (Santa Ynez): Dense, jammy & somewhat overpriced. It'll age, but I'm not sure it should command the coin they're asking #
  • 05 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Petite Syrah (Napa): Like The Rock or a cartoon dinosaur, uncharacteristically approachable for being so big. #

  • 07 Pavo Syrah (Sonoma): Like the Balrog, only he's made of kick-ass dark fruit, w/ red berry horns. Oh, & his whip is made of white pepper. #
  • 08 Shoofly 'Chook Raffle' Chardonnay (Adelaide Hills): Balancing act of melon, acidity, & slight oak, but one of those balls takes a tumble #
  • 07 Lander Jenkins 'Spirit Hawk' Cabernet Sauvignon (CA): Bing cherry fans, rejoice. This puppy delivers the big-time Bing at low-time price. #

  • 07 Penley 'Condor' Shiraz Cabernet (Coonawarra): Really dig the smokey overtones. Don't really dig the prevalent berry soda action, though. #
  • 08 Lander Jenkins 'Spirit Hawk' Chardonnay (CA): All is peachy with this crowd-pleaser – on the nose, on the palate, and on the wallet. #
  • 07 Black Box Shiraz (Central Coast, CA): Rough around the edges? A bit. fruity & pleasant? Yep. A good buy? Definitely. #
  • 06 O Fournier Alfa Crux Malbec (Mendoza): Spectacular – from dense sour cherry to Slim Jim, & everything in-between. This wine floored me. #
  • 07 Trapiche Broquel Torrontes (Cafayate Valley): A lot of flowers, a little bit of flab, and enough spices to stave off boredom. #
  • 07 Dme Jean Bousquet Malbec Reserva (Mendoza): Like being in a tobacco field, with a small kid intermittently lobbing blackberries at you! #
  • 06 Zuccardi 'Serie A' Bonarda (Mendoza): More jelly than jam, more good than bad, more not my style than… well, than my style… #
  • 06 Zuccardi Q Malbec (Mendoza): Big, tannic, and fruity. At less than $20, you *will* find friends who will suck this down at your next BBQ. #
  • 00 Etude Pinot Noir (Carneros): The bright red berry fruit is all up in your mix like Betty Crocker. But why be shy when you're this tasty? #
