Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2010-08-07

Vinted on August 7, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 09 Benziger Sauvignon Blanc (Sonoma/Lake County): Clean & charming. Kind of the Mr. Clean of Cali. SBs, only without the earring. $15 B+ #
  • 08 de Coelo "Terra Neuma" Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast): Challenging vintage births a juicy, mouthwatering fist full of dark cherries. $69 B+ #
  • 08 de Coelo "Quintus" Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast): Mysterious stranger in a dark coat (an earthy, spicy, black cherry kind of coat). $69 A- #
  • 07 Benziger Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma): Struggling between "Brooding" (dark berry, espresso) & "Lively" (cola). Oh, yeah, and "Heat". $20 B #
  • 07 Benziger "Tribute" (Sonoma Mountain): Pepper, Cedar, plum, graphite, spice; almost the entire kitchen makes a grand entrance here. $80 A- #
  • 08 August Briggs 'Dijon Clones' Pinot Noir (Napa Valley): The good news? It's velvety, dark & tasty. The bad news? It's damn hot! $40 B #
  • 08 August Briggs Pinot Noir (Russian River): Big, spicy, juicy & seductive. For those who like their Pinot "the bigger the better." $38 B+ #
  • 08 Kruger-Rumpf Munsterer Rheinberg Kabinett Riesling (Nahe): Flinty minerals spiking a lime & mango core. Could drink this all day. $19 B+ #
  • 08 Guy Saget Le Domaine Saget Pouilly-Fume: Not too complicated but textbook flinty P-F. Wish more SB from the U.S. tasted like this. $29 B+ #
