Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2009-11-07

Vinted on November 7, 2009 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 07 Scloss Reinhartshausen Fountain Blue Riesling (Rheingau): ABCs of the region – Austere, Balanced, & Critical mass of apricot goodness #
  • 07 Scloss Reinhartshausen Old Vines Riesling (Rheingau): Victorian-statue austere. White peach & pineapple demand that u kiss their rings! #
  • 07 Schloss Reinhartshausen Erbach Erstes Gewachs Riesling (Rheingau): Peach, tropical fruit & enough booze to rock your T-Day turkey feast. #
  • 07 Schloss Reinhartshausen Erbacher Marcobrunn Auslese (Rheingau): Drop dried apricots in a vat of local honey. Now, serve it in heaven. #
  • 06 Josh Cellars Amber Knolls Cabernet Sauvignon (Red Hills, CA): An economical choice for lovers of big (aka Fruity + Oaky) CA Cab. #
  • 07 Errazuriz Don Maximiano Single Viny'd Carmenere (Aconcagua Valley): A lush plum pie, but some of the bites have chunks of bell pepper… #
  • 08 Big House Pink (CA): If it's a house, it's a house carved out of the patch by Strawberry Shortcake herself. Competent if unexciting rose. #
  • 07 Josef Leitz Eins Zwei Dry Riesling (Rheingau): Great approachable, turkey-friendly, if a bit over-priced example of Rheingau goodness. #
  • 05 Halter Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon (Paso Robles): Intense & extracted, this is tasty but the booze needs to be approached with caution. #
  • 01 Rutherford Hill Merlot (Napa Valley): Waves of tar & game are gently pulling at the blackberry & cedar shore. Adult swim, baby! #
  • 07 Santa Carolina Reserva de Familia Carmenere (Rapel Valley): Dark, fruity, & green-peppery. Mouthfeel outshines the nosefeel. Nosefeel? #
  • 06 Mollydooker Enchanted Path (McLaren Vale): Has every red flavor you can think of, & it just might stand up to aging vs. the immense booze #

  • 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. #
