Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2010-07-03

Vinted on July 3, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 08 Claypool Cellars "Purple Pachyderm" (RRV): Packs a boozy wallop but the No. 1 pick in this trade is in the awesomely deep red fruit $42 B #
  • 08 Claypool Cellars Hurst Vineyard "Purple Pachyderm" (RRV): The PP's big brother trumpets more red berry intensity into the family. $N/A B+ #
  • 07 Luce della Vite Lucente (Tuscany): Plenty of dark fruit & intrigue in this blend, but it might have you pining for more Sangiovese. $28 B #
  • 08 Guy Saget Les Clissages d’Or (Muscadet Sevre et Maine): A bit green, but given time the citrus will rock your shellfish dinner. $15 B #
  • 09 Tilia Torrontes (Salta): If the apricot & sweet citrus rocked you any harder, this wine would have to change its name to AC/DC. $10 B #
  • 08 Vionta Albarino (Rias Baixas): The finish contains a citrus blast big enough to be worthy of a July 4th fireworks celebration. $19 B #
  • 06 L'Ecole No. 41 Seven Hills Vineyard Estate "Perigee" (Walla Walla): 'Close to the earth' is right, & it's close to being perfect. $50 A- #
