  • 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 binned in 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. #

  • 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. #
