Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2009-06-13

Vinted on June 13, 2009 binned in twitter, wine mini-reviews
  • 07 Trefethen Oak Knoll Chardonnay (Napa): Yeah it's oaky, but there's good fruit & structure. Has balanced returned to the land of T Chard? #
  • 07 The Crusher Wilson vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Clarksburg): Jammy & spicy enough to be Syrah, cheap enough that you might not care. #
  • 08 Carmen Gewurztraminer (Curico Valley): All the right mojo is there (lychee, rose petal) but it's kinda flabby. Time for the treadmill… #
  • 05 Franciscan Magnificat (Napa Valley): If you like red, jammy CA Cab, then you're not likely to do much better. Bring the checkbook. #
  • 08 The Crusher Petite Sirah (Clarksburg): Like spicy cigar smoke. But those astringent tannins will never soften, so bring some flank steak. #

  • 05 Cornerstone Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon: Promises elegance, but you’ll need 4 yrs min. to tame those driveway-sealing tannins. #
  • 02 Cornerstone Cellars Howell Mtn Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa): Great now, but will improve if u can wait. Black fruit, spice, earth and funk. #
  • 04 Cornerstone Cellars Howell Mtn Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa): (Very) ripe & jammy red berry fruit dominates. Crazy good, but not cheap… #
  • 07 Rose Garden (Russian River): Stately & elegant rose with hints of strawberry & spices. Too bad they don’t sell it, ’cause it rocks… #
  • 07 Heron Hill Semi-Dry Riesling (NY): Well-balanced, solid, fruity offering that should be in your “match with Chinese take-out” arsenal. #
  • 08 Clos LaChance Glittering-Throated Emerald Unoaked Chardonnay (Monterey): Enough tropical, food-friendly fruit to warrant a tiny umbrella. #
  • 07 Clos LaChance Crimson Topaz Meritage (Central Coast): Red fruit & beef jerky funk. Drink it now, bring some grilled steak (and friends). #
  • 06 Clos LaChance Ruby-throated Cabernet Sauvignon (Central Coast): More red fruit than black, more good than bad, more bang for your buck. #

  • 06 Veramonte “Primus” (Colchagua):JAM on it. JAM on it. I said jam-j-j-JAM on it. Wikki-wikki-wikki-wikki. The beat is fresh y’all! #
  • 07 Golden Kaan Shiraz (W. Cape, SA): Fat red fruit & tons of pepper, and light on the $ – seems tailored made for a long-weekend barbecue. #
  • 06 Heron Hill eclipse (NY): VG blend of Chard, PB & PG. Melon, citrus & just the right amount of oak, which in this is case is not too much! #
  • 07 Waters Crest Night Watch Late Harvest (LI): Cloyingly sweet, but the acidity is rockin’ like Dokken. Might even toss some cake at it… #
  • 08 Alamos Torrontes (Catena): For the price, this wine kicks complete ass. Pineapple & peach, crisp finish… and the nose is *killer*… #
  • 05 Paumanok Petit Verdot (LI): Stellar vintage a very tasty result. Ripe dark cherry, leather, and spice. Saddle up & ride ‘em with pride! #

  • 07 Schloss Lieser Niederberg Helden Riesling Auslese (Mosel): Crazy good & fwd-thinking producer. Magic blend of honey-lemon & minerals. #
  • 08 Fitz-Ritter Ungsteiner Herrenberg Riesling Spatlese (Pfalz): All tropics upfront, gives way to a great sweet / acid balance & long finish #
  • 07 Fitz-Ritter Durkheimer Hochbenn Riesling Eiswein (Pfalz): Combine lemon curd, glycerin, nail polish & honey-lemon. And it’s stellar. #
  • 94 Max Fer. Richter Jeffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling TBA (Mosel): (Too) trad. producer. But this achingly sweet burnt-orange syrup is crazy good… #
  • 02 Kesselstatt Josesphshofer Riesling Spatlese (Mosel): Mesquite honey & citrus. Sweet, racy, lively… and sublimely good. #
