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

Vinted on July 11, 2009 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 07 The Crusher Wilson Vineyard Viognier (Clarksburg): Notes of honey & flowers help to offset the flab & make it a decent value for the $. #
  • 06 Whitehaven Pinot Noir (Marlborough, NZ): Easy-drinking w/ intense red berry, smooth tannin & minerals. Exactly what a kiwi red should be. #
  • 06 Michael David Gluttony Old Vine Zinfandel (Lodi, CA): This wine is Godzilla. You are Japan!!! Prepare for total destruction! #
  • 07 Chateau Ste Michelle Riesling (Columbia Valley): Long on the citrus & apricot. Awkward mid-palate, but don’t moan too much at this price. #
  • 07 La Tancia Chianti: Over-delivers a bit for the price. A little astringent, but the acidity & sour cherry will play very well with pizza. #
  • 06 Napa Cellars Stagecoach Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Tasty & not overblown, but so much green pepper you’ll think you’re in Chile. #
  • 07 Dievole ‘Pinocchio’ Nero d’Avola (Sicily): Bright red fruit & herbs, easy drinking & tasty. Maybe a touch too much ML. For now not later. #
