Weekly Twitter Wine Mini Reviews Round-Up for 2010-11-19

Vinted on November 20, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • NV Domaine Ste Michelle Brut (Columbia Valley): Tosses nunchucks of tart green apple flavor at the other cheap sparklers on the shelf $10 B- ->
  • 04 Azul Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon/Malbec (Mendoza): A tad heavy-handed but U might like that from someone this complex, dark & sexy. $32 B+ ->
  • 06 Ricominciare Cabernet Franc/Cabernet Sauvignon (Mendoza): 750ml of stewed fruit, herbs & meat. Interesting but never quite connects $26 B ->
  • NV De Chanceny Cremant de Loire (Loire): This bubbly’s 1-2 combo move of bread-&-pear will deke you out of noticing the rough edges. $12 B- ->
  • 08 Romerhof Riesling (Mosel): Kind of like having the somewhat overly-flirtatious daughter of a Baron hitting on you at a posh party. $10 B- ->
  • 09 Simonnet-Febvre Saint-Bris (Burgundy): A wine trivia question answer, but also a decent Sauv Blanc buy if you’re into lemon zest. $12 B- ->
  • 08 Dievole Dievolino Sangiovese di Toscana (Toscana): A mouthful of dark cherry, burnt-orange-peel goodness for U Old World paisanos. $15 B ->
  • 07 Valley of the Moon Syrah (Sonoma County): Brings the blackberries, but also brings Da Funk. A little *too* much Funk, actually. $13 B- ->
  • 09 Paso a Paso Tempranillo (La Mancha): Plumy, floral & spicy proof that La Mancha is getting its fine wine shiz together. A bargain. $11 B ->
