Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2009-08-15

Vinted on August 15, 2009 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 90 Max Ferd. Richter Helenenkloster Riesling Spatlese (Mosel): Neon lemon vibrant color. Slight TCA, but the acidity is just screaming good. #
  • 02 Trefethen Library Selection Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Big, bold, but supremely focused. Ass-kicking black cherries dominate. #
  • 06 Inniskillin VIdal Gold Icewine (Niagara): Color, acidity, sugar, citrus, honeysuckle – it's all amped up to the extreme in this offering. #
  • 08 Black Box Chardonnay (Monterey): Yes, it's from a box, but if you're buying Yellowtail Chard instead of this easy-drinker, you're insane. #
  • 05 Innocent Bystander Bleeding Heart (Australia): Drinkable but somewhat dysfunctional Sangiovese/Merlot blend. Hints of pepper add interest #
  • 07 m2 Soucie Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel (Lodi): Dried black fruit, chocolate, & cola. Like James Bown's papa, this wine don't take no mess! #
  • 08 St. Supery Dollarhide Sauvignon Blanc (Napa Valley): Not subtle but certainly complex w/ passion fruit, citrus & grass. Great job on this #
