Vinted on April 10, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • NV Banfi Rosa Regale (Brachetto d’Acqui): Cranberries, rose petals, & fun. Don’t expect an open bottle to stay full for very long. $20 B- #
  • 06 Gallo Barrelli Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Alexander Valley): Serve to those who still think fruit bombs can’t be legit. $35 B+ #
  • 08 Mac Murray Ranch Pinot Gris (Sonoma Coast): Honeydew & citrus, please, on the rocks. Easy on the flab. Shaken, not stirred. $20 B #
  • 08 Anthony Road Semi-Dry Riesling (Finger Lakes): The road to spicy Asian food pairing is paved w/ peaches, lemon zest & wet rocks. $15 B+ #
  • 08 Domaine Ricard “Le Clos de Vauriou” (Touraine): The *other* Gamay is grapey goodness, but you’d better really like white pepper. $12 B+ #
  • 06 Cross ‘Brix Vineyard’ Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Checking into the black currant hotel. The beds have velvet tannin sheets. $65 A #
  • 08 Bonny Doon Muscat Ca’ Del Solo (Monterey): Squeeze some lemon onto an orange blossom & you’ll get the (generally excellent) idea. $18 B+ #
  • 08 Bonny Doon Vin Gris De Cigare (CA): If drinking this well-crafted rose in the Summer doesn’t make you happy, then you have issues. $15 B+ #
  • 07 Celler de Capçanes Peraj Petita (Montsant): This kosher Garnacha blend has that “I’m damn sexy” vibe goin’ on. Hello, date night! $22 B #
  • 05 Trefethen Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Enormous & powerful. The obelisk from Kubrick’s 2001 whispering “worship me.” $100 A- #
