Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2009-08-22

Vinted on August 22, 2009 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 07 Rued Chardonnay (Russian River Valley): Aromatic & *almost* balanced at 14.5 abv with stone fruits galore. Pretty good deal for $18. #
  • 05 Blair Wedding Cuvee (Pennsylvania): Bad label, good wine. One of the spiciest (& best) East Coast Cab Franc blends I've had in a while. #
  • 08 d'Arenberg 'Broken Fishplate' Sauvignon Blanc (Adelaide Hills): From tropical fruit to an herbal finish. But the ride btw is a bit bumpy. #
  • 08 Cono Sur Vision Pinot Noir (Colchagua Valley): All of the jammy fruit that PN can muster, & then some more jammy fruit for good measure. #
  • Senor Sangeria (NV): Fruity (red) w/ pleasing sweetness & acidity. Pour this at a party, & it's gone in a flash. Great work & a fun concept. #
  • 07 Bonny Doon Le Cigare Blanc (Monterey): Like an amuse-bouche, but it's a pear soaked in tasty booze. Thank you sir, can I have another? #
  • 05 Diamond Terrace Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa): Dark Chocolate-covered black cherries are nice, but prob. not as good as this. #
  • 06 Cliff Bar Family Winery 'The Climber' Red (CA): Like a mountain pass, things get rough. But the black fruit along the way is enjoyable. #

    Too bad about the Howell Mountain. It always seems that HM is either incredibly good, or frankly below average.

    Thanks for the reviews as always

      Hmmm…. well, I screwed this up, then, because I thought the HM was kickin'!
