Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2009-05-09

Vinted on May 9, 2009 binned in twitter, wine mini-reviews
  • 08 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough): With those tropical fruits, this is NZ SB with a big, fun Hawaiian shirt and a sun hat. #
  • 08 Alamos Malbec (Mendoza): Inky & not as big as you might expect, but still much more of a ‘Godzilla’ wine than, say, a ‘Moth-Ra’ wine. #
  • 07 Wolffer Estate Icewine (Hamptons): White pear, sugar crystals, and glycerin. Sounds like a bomb, but that 20+ sec. finish is THE bomb… #
  • 07 Shinn Estate Cabernet Franc (North Fork, LI): Pre-release, promises to be stunning. A carriage ride through spice & red berry patches… #
  • 05 Wolffer Premier Cru Merlot (Hamptons): The blueberry fruit is svelte, as are the minerals, spices & liveliness. The price is NOT svelte. #
  • 06 Merliance Merlot (Long Island): 5-winery LI showcase blend. All smoke on the nose, but smooth as silk red berry once it hits your mouth. #
  • 06 Mer Soleil Barrel Fermented Chardonnay (Santa Lucia Highlands): It was a BIG time when they drank BIG wines with BIG butter & BIG oak… #

    is svelte the new buzzword du jour? I am having trouble conjouring up the taste of svelte. But one day perhaps I will try something where svelte will float into my mind.

      Well, it's one of my faves at the moment ;-). It happened to be the first thing that came to mind when I tasted some of those LI wines. The fruit wasn't fat, but it wasn't thin either, so… svelte!
