Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2010-01-16

Vinted on January 16, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 07 Rossi-Wallace Pinot Noir (Napa Valley): A dense cherry core draped w/ aromas of violets, like it’s wearing a boa made of flower petals. #
  • 07 Rossi-Wallace Chardonnay (Napa Valley): Bright, steely, awesome, & about as close to Chablis as you’re ever gonna get from California. #
  • 07 Swanson Pinot Grigio (Napa Valley): As grapefruity & aromatic as you'd expect out of Alsace or NZ. Still priced like Napa, though. #
  • 06 Wallis Little Sister Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Luxurious dark fruit & fennel take a long (& affordable!) trip down tobacco road. #
  • 04 El Coto de Rioja Coto de Imaz Reserva: Sure-footed (those are vanilla-dipped red berry feet), dependable, tasty, & a tad overpriced. #
  • 07 Six Prong Chardonnay (Horse Heaven Hills): 1 prong lemon, 1 prong pear, & 4 prongs flab. Mouthfeel = letdown, even for a budget pick. #
  • 06 Robert Mondavi Chardonnay (Napa Valley): *Almost* enuf harmony in the stone & peachy fruits to forgive the touch-too-much of oak & lees. #

    Dear Wine Dude,
    I'm new to your site and very impressed. I want to learn more about wines and this looks like a wonderful resource. I shall pass this on to others who are "wineless" about the vine! Thank you for sharing and will be sure to return back real soon.
    Cheers, PT
