Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2010-01-09

Vinted on January 9, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 05 Cesari Mara Vino Di Ripasso (Valpolicella): Dried cherry action w/ some orange peel & spice happily complicating matters. Pass the pork. #
  • 05 Ruffino Riserva Ducale (Chianti Classico): For all that complex dark cherry structure, it's starting to show a bit of age. Drink soon. #
  • 07 Jackson-Triggs Vidal Icewine (Niagara): Like mango & melon sorbet. Actually, for the price, it's better than mango & melon sorbet. #
  • 06 Walter Dacon "Appanage" Syrah (Yakima Valley): How do you make good cold-climate syrah in Yakima? Ask these guys, they've nailed it. #
  • 03 Masi Costasera Amarone Classico (Valpolicella): Totally amped up acidity, tannin, booze, etc. Just a baby (but a tasty black fruit baby) #
  • 05 Masi Campofiorin Ripasso (Veronese): Well-balanced & well-integrated. A delight. Food-friendly Amarone without the obnoxious wait. #
  • 05 Domaine des Bernadins Muscat de Beaumes de Venise: Like a circular saw blade made from flowers, honey & mint; rough around the edges. #
  • 06 Protos Ribera del Duero Roble: A red fruit tableau bargain that plays well with others in the culinary sandbox (your dinner table). #
  • 06 Monte Antico Toscana: A humble Tuscan mostly-Sangiovese blend – humble in origin, price, & taste. Maybe a bit too humble in taste… #
