Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2010-04-24

Vinted on April 24, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 08 Alamos Chardonnay (Mendoza): Things may get too tropical, toasty, or sweet for you, but things will *definitely* get interesting. $13 B- #
  • 05 Snows Lake “Two” (Lake County): CS/CF blend layered w/ berry, spices, cocoa, it’s like the whole pantry. Underpriced (for now) at $45 A #
  • 07 Talus Collection Zinfandel (Lodi): Almost improbably good. Like a 1st date that’s also a cheap date & ends with you getting lucky. $7 B- #
  • 07 Eola Hills Zinfandel (Lodi): A shot of booziness on the palate isn’t enough to spoil the spicy, jammy fruit & dusty-tannin party. $13 B- #
  • 07 Trefethen Double T (Napa Valley): Heavy on the fig, heavy on the smoky spice, heavy on the mellow smoothness, heavy on the value. $25 B+ #
  • 04 Sterling “Three Palms” Merlot (Napa Valley): Drinks like a Cab. It’s good but know what you’re in for (namely, dried black cherry) $30 B+ #
  • 08 Elviwines Clasico Red (Ribiera del Jucar): Juicy dried cherries, only the cherries are kinda under-ripe & leave you a bit wanting. $13 C #
  • 08 Hazlitt Homestead Reserve Riesling (Finger Lakes): Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the tartest lemony finish of them all? $18 B #
  • 08 Clos Cristal Hospices De Saumur (Saumur Champigny): And they ruled the land with a Violet fist! With a hint o’ green as well. $19 B #
  • 07 Seven Artisans Clayton Rd Ranches Petite Sirah (Suisan Valley): KISS’ “Hotter Than Hell” might have been referring to this wine. $17 C+ #
  • NV Campbells Tokay Liquid Gold (Rutherglen): Lusciously uber-extracted nutty caramel. Enough abv to pickle you soundly (twice over). $14 B+ #
