Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2010-08-14

Vinted on August 14, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 09 El Coto de Rioja Blanco (Rioja): Short on balance, but plenty long on herbs, flowers and tart citrus for the price. $9 B- #
  • 08 Torbreck Woodcutter’s Shiraz (Barossa): Hot vintage births a hot wine. Still, it’s a great opp. to sample those 100+ yr old vines. $22 B #
  • 08 Tres Sabores Farina Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc (Sonoma Mntn): Round but also vibrant thanks to some “previously inspired” French oak $22 B+ #
  • 07 Tres Sabores Rutherford Estate Zinfandel (Napa Valley): Eminently enjoyable & spicy black berry marred only by a bit too boozy edge $35 B #
  • 07 Tres Sabores “Por que No” (Napa Valley): Zin blend that will very likely make you the upscale hero of your next BBQ picnic. $25 B+ #
  • 06 Tres Sabores “Perspective” Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford): Besides the price, there’s a lot to love in this dark, dusty wonder. $80 B+ #
  • 07 Tres Sabores Petite Sirah (Napa Valley): If you like dark chocolate, then buy this, pronto (if you’re lucky enough to find any). $45 B+ #
  • 08 Cantina Novelli Trebbiano Spoletino Bianco (Umbria): Old vines, herbs & almonds have taken squatters’ rights in the citrus house. $18 B+ #
  • 06 Cantina Novelli Rosso (Montefalco): With such light oak, it probably shouldn’t be this far into the “Old” of the “Old World” style $27 B- #
  • 07 Cantina Novelli Bianco Cube (Umbria): Looks as yellow as the fruits it tastes like. And the yellow tastes are pretty tasty indeed. $14 B #
  • 07 Domaine Rochette Pisse-Vieille (Brouilly): Futher berry, peppery proof that you can’t really go too far wrong with Cru Beaujolais. $18 B+ #
