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

Vinted on September 5, 2009 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 87 Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia (Tuscany): Cannonball shot of dark fruit awesomeness to your gut. Exit wound leaves huge hole in your wallet. #
  • 08 Domaine Tempier Rosé (Bandol): A strawberry patch surrounded by a spice garden, with an olive chaser. Dry as a bone. Worth the coin. #
  • 07 Karl Erbes Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Spatlese (Mosel): Dare I eat a peach? Yes, when it's this noble, sweet, and refreshingly acidic! #
  • 07 Yannis Assyrtiko (Santorini): Like honey-nut cheerios, only salted, fermented, and without the cereal. Bring me squid, for pete's sake! #
  • 95 Château d'Yquem (Sauternes): Poetic & polished high-wire juggling act of honey, caramel, apricot, flowers, lemon curd & citric acidity #
  • 89 Ch. L'Evangile (Pomeral): That blackberry fruit is a little dusty. Everything turns out splendidly, of course. Could sniff this for ages. #
  • 89 Ch. Léoville Las Cases (St. Julien): Dark red fruit is more velvety than you'd 1st suspect. Graphite adds to the pleasure. Drink it now. #
  • 08 Terracita Tempranillo (Castilla): Boysenberry & woody vanilla that goes down almost too easily. At $9, you can afford to gulp it down. #
  • 08 Bodegas Etchart Torrontes Reserve (Cafayete): One sniff is like being at the flower shop (and the flower shop pairs well with sushi). #
  • 07 Bodega Colome Malbec (Calchaqui): The blackberries & violets will kick your ass so hard you might need to stand the rest of the night. #
  • 08 Michel Torino 'Don David' Torrontes (Cafayate): Torrontes dressed up for the ball – all elegance, class and subtle beauty. Gulp! #
  • 06 Michel Torino 'Don David' Cabernet Sauvignon (Cafayate): Someone set fire to a cherry-flavored graphite pencil! And damn, do I like it! #
