Weekly Twitter Wine Mini Reviews Round-Up for 2010-11-26

Vinted on November 27, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 09 Grafen Neipperg Muskateller Halbtrocken (Württemberg): Like having a date over a tangy lychee martini, that end with a sweet kiss. $22 B- ->
  • 08 Wish Nouveau Pinot Noir (North Coast): Gr8 concept but this dried cherry & smoked bacon juggling act never really finds its groove $20 C+ ->
  • 09 Finca Lasierpe Garnacha Rosado (Navarra): Capably & uncomplicatedly comfortable in its own pink, red berry & somewhat meaty skin. $7 C+ ->
  • 08 Tikal "Amorio" Malbec (Mendoza): Simultaneously dark (in color), bright (in red & black fruit) & spicy. Bring on the flank steak! $30 B+ ->
  • 04 Conti Sertoli Salis Corte Della Meridiana (Valtellina Superiore): A raisin-y, spicy, earthy & eminently tasty take on Nebbiolo. $39 B+ ->
  • 07 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Leather, vanilla, & just about every type of cherry flavor you could think of. $49 B+ ->
  • NV Vigne Regali Cuvee Aurora Rose (Alta Langa): Sparkling tale of vanilla, bread and roses. Is there anything that N. Italy can't do? $30 B ->
  • 08 Las Perdices Reserva Pinot Noir (Mendoza): Spice, Earth, Flowers & Red Berry Compote walk into a bar. The bartender says… $21 B ->
  • Quevedo Special Reserve Tawny Port (Porto): Nothing tawdry about this Tawny; honey, smoke, burnt caramel, spices & dried *everything*. $15 B ->

Black Friday Wine Picks (Wine Crush Blog)

Vinted on November 26, 2010 binned in about 1winedude blog, holidays

Greetings, oh-so-recently-stuffed-to-the-gills gourmands!

Rather than hand out badges and ratings this long holiday weekend, I am taking a slightly different angle on the wine recommendations in honor of the most-dreaded of post-holiday excursions: shopping on Black Friday.

Today, you can head over to The Wine Crush Blog anytime after 9:30 AM CT and read my (acerbic) take on what wines to pair with your Black Friday shopping!

For those of you who are humorless (which in all likelihood are those of you who’ve stumbled onto this blog accidentally while searching for wine magazine subscriptions on Google), please note that today’s article on The Wine Crush Blog is not meant in any way to resemble any writing even remotely meant to be serious.

I hope you enjoy the edgy-but-humorous diversion as your body slowly purges itself of tryptophan!

Cheers!

1WineDudeTV Episode 22: Wine Blogger Welfare (or “What Doesn’t Work In Wine Blog Advertising”)

Vinted on November 24, 2010 binned in 1WineDude TV, going pro

In the latest Going Pro series installment, I talk about what works (and doesn’t work!) for advertising on wine blogs.  Why? Because YOU asked for it!

I also engage in some very, very strange dancing behavior which I hope doesn’t offend anyone. (Sorry!).

Have a safe & happy Turkey Day, people!

Mentioned in this episode:

Cheers!
