Weekly Twitter Wine Mini Reviews Round-Up for 2010-10-08

Vinted on October 9, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 09 Baron K Riesling Kabinett (Rheingau): A lighter, more playful (but by no means inferior) take on the Rheingau; tasty & elegant too. $17 B ->
  • 08 Undone Pinot Noir (Rheinhessen): Almost jammy red berries & spice? From Germany? Hot damn, this one's gonna please a lot of peeps. $13 B- ->
  • 09 Luigi Bosca Finca La Linda Torrontes (Cafayate): Made me feel like I'd just made out with a pear-perfume-wearing Cougar in a bar. $10 B- ->
  • 06 Montes Alpha "M" (Santa Cruz Valley): Not w/out its flaws, but just way too lovable in a velvety, dark, quirky & complex way. $98 A- ->
  • 08 Guy Saget La Petite Perriere Sauvignon Blanc (Loire): Clean, crisp, full of melons but just a bit too petite for its own good. $11 C+ ->
  • 08 Olivier Leflaive 1er Cru Clos St. Marc (Chassagne-Montrachet): Elegant; like buying yourself a license to be royalty for an hour. $90 A- ->
  • 07 Olivier Leflaive 1er Cru Charmes (Meursault): Brioche, Butter & Butt-Kickery (but you ought to expect it at this price-point!) $103 A- ->
  • 08 Olivier Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet: Like a non-Photoshopped Men's Health cover model – not an ounce of discernible flab on it. $57 B+ ->
  • 08 Olivier Leflaive Meursault: More nuts than a box of Planter's, more flowers than granny's garden, & more balance than Nik Wallenda $52 B+ ->
  • 08 J Vineyards Chardonnay (Russian River Valley): An exquisitely prepared crème brûlée; exquisitely prepared w/ a bit too much booze. $28 B ->
  • 06 Judd's Hill Founder's Art Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Still tight as a drum; a powerful, dark-cherry, spicy drum. $65 B+ ->

    Have you ever had the Judd Hill Petit Sirah? Maybe one of the best California expressions of the grape (which I think is misunderstood and under appreciated). I have had it at a friends house in Western PA, which is was available in Maryland.

      Hi dc – not yet but I think I might have a bottle waiting for me in the sample bins in the cellar!
