Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2010-10-02

Vinted on October 2, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 06 Louis M. Martini Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Heck of a crowd-pleasing, velvety, tobacco-infused ride for the price. $25 B #
  • 07 Continuum Red (Oakville): Graphite & fig did it for me, but w/ complexity like this you can find 20 other things to float yer boat $129 A #
  • 09 Jean-Paul Brun Dme. des Terres Dorees L'Ancien (Beaujolais): As good as many of the Beaujolais Crus out there & a few $ cheaper! $15 B #
  • 09 Dme. de Vissoux Les Griottes Rose (Beaujolais): Long on acid, short on fruit. Still, better give it benefit of the doubt w/ food. $15 C+ #
  • 09 Domaine Dupeuble Pere et Fils (Beaujolais): What, u don't like red berry w/ peppers & flowers? Fine – more for me then, buck-o! $13 B- #
  • 09 Chateau des Pethieres (Beaujolais): Slightly homely love-child of Strawberry, banana, violet & venison tryst. Yeah, I'm serious. $15 C+ #
  • 09 Castell Silvaner trocken (Franken): Lime Sprite for the wine set, & about as easily / drinkably accessible (if a tad overpriced). $17 B- #
  • 05 Clos Du Val Stags Leap Dist. Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Napa Cab in a sharp European suit, talking w/ a mild French accent. $70 A- #
  • 06 Kilikanoon M Reserve Shiraz (McLaren Vale): If u like yer cola big, black & extracted you might just fall in love; otherwise avoid $70 B+ #
  • 08 Penley Estate Aradia Chardonnay (Coonawarra): It went big (& buttery), I went home, but lovers of large might feel right *at* home $20 B #
