Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2010-01-23

Vinted on January 23, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 06 Jacob's Creek Steingarten Riesling (Barossa): They ride on blaaaaazing aaaaaciiiiiiiiid! And lemon zest. And then even more acid. B- #
  • 06 Cruz Andina Malbec (Mendoza): More jams than a Phish concert. Decant for 2 hrs, serve w/ brisket & the higher price will seem worth it. B #
  • 08 Folonari Pinot grigio (Veneto): For $9, don't expect the world. But expect its green apple flavor to play nicely with baked fish. C+ #
  • 08 Ritual Pinot Noir (Casablanca Valley): There's dark cherry New World Pinot in there, but you've gotta dig thru the green pepper for it. C #
  • 06 Rocca Estate Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Big & beautiful. 5 yrs will integrate the red fruits, cinnamon & vanilla, but why wait? A #
  • 08 Giovanni Almondo Bricco delle Ciliegie (Arneis): Peach, citrus & screamin' minerality. Could have more aromatic bang for the buck, tho. B #
  • 06 Mettler 'Epicenter' Old Vine Zinfandel (Lodi): Too bad about the heat, 'cause the dense blackberry & cracked pepper totally rock. B- #
