Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2009-04-18

Vinted on April 18, 2009 binned in twitter, wine mini-reviews
  • 07 Polka dot Riesling (Pfalz): Sweet but not cloying; floral but not that fruity; cheap but not too bad #
  • 07 Sebeka Cabernet Pinotage (Western Cape, SA): Dark red fruit… followed by… the fat of… BACON!!! #
  • Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc/Viognier (CA): You might expect this to be flabby, but bright acidity & tropical fruits carry the day with this one #
  • 07 Sebeka Sauvignon Blanc (Western Cape, SA): You might find the acidity a tad lacking, but the minerality will win you back (so will the $) #
  • 04 CarmelVintage (Israel): Port-style dessert petite syrah from the OLD Old World. Blackberry syrup gives way to smoke & dried prune. Nice. #
  • 07 Napa Cellars Napa Valley Pinot Noir: VG, but I’m waiting for more fruit. It’s like a fabulous cherry, with a pound of X-mas spice on top. #

  • Veuve Clicquot Brut “Yellow Label” (Champagne): Well-balanced green apples and yeasty bread, & still quite worthy of the heady reputation. #
  • 07 Rosa D’Oro Muscat Canelli (Lake COunty, CA): Intense lemon, green grape, & blistering citrus acid that just screams for a crab salad. #
  • 07 Rosa D’Oro Sangiovese (Lake County, CA): Nice balance of dried red fruit and “puckery” structure. Not from Chianti? Could’ve fooled me… #
  • 08 Estancia Riesling (Monterey County): No mistaking this is from a warmer climate. Apples & peach dominate (but with a hint of honey). #
  • 06 Paso Creek Cabernet Sauvignon (Paso Robles): Concentrated dark cherry, almost sweet. Fruity, yes. Complex, no. #
  • 07 Jackson-Triggs Proprietor’s Reserve Icewine (Niagara): Like liquid mango sorbet, except it goes with fruit tart & can get you buzzed. #

  • 07 ZD Chardonnay (Napa): A buttery vanilla muffin w/ pineapple jam. If that doesn’t sound appealing, then you’d better stay far, far away. #
  • 07 Estancia Chardonnay (Monterey): Very easy-going, like a bowl yogurt with tropical fruits mixed in. An oak bowl, that is. #
  • 07 Recanati “Yasmin” Red Mevushal (Jezreel): Kosher Israeli Bord’x blend. Very red, very fruity, very tasty, and very inexpensive. Score! #
  • 07 Rosa D’Oro Refosco (CA): Inky black, violets & leather-laden N. Italian grape in the crafty hands of a talented CA family outfit. #
  • 07 Recanati Chardonnay (Galilee): Lemony acidity & a hint of nuts. I can taste all 9 months of the sur lie aging – you’d better be into oak. #

  • 07 Sebeka Shiraz Pinotage “Cape Blend” (Western Cape, SA): Jammy red fruit w/ just enough game-meat funk to keep things from getting boring. #
  • 07 Sebeka Chardonnay (Western Cape, SA): Uncomplicated mix of melons & pear. A great option for mid-day party fare for the price point. #
  • 05 Recanati Reserve Petite Sirah / Zinfandel (Galilee, Israel): Dark blackberry jam, spice & pepper. New world style, old (old) world place. #
  • 06 Mondavi Private Selection Zinfandel (CA): Not bad, but sort of like the way a Pinto was “not bad.” #
  • 07 Lorentz Gewurztraminer (Alsace): Good lychee aroma & very good balance. Can someone take my car keys please… #
