Weekly Twitter Wine Mini Reviews Round-Up for 2010-11-26

Vinted on November 27, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 09 Grafen Neipperg Muskateller Halbtrocken (Württemberg): Like having a date over a tangy lychee martini, that end with a sweet kiss. $22 B- ->
  • 08 Wish Nouveau Pinot Noir (North Coast): Gr8 concept but this dried cherry & smoked bacon juggling act never really finds its groove $20 C+ ->
  • 09 Finca Lasierpe Garnacha Rosado (Navarra): Capably & uncomplicatedly comfortable in its own pink, red berry & somewhat meaty skin. $7 C+ ->
  • 08 Tikal "Amorio" Malbec (Mendoza): Simultaneously dark (in color), bright (in red & black fruit) & spicy. Bring on the flank steak! $30 B+ ->
  • 04 Conti Sertoli Salis Corte Della Meridiana (Valtellina Superiore): A raisin-y, spicy, earthy & eminently tasty take on Nebbiolo. $39 B+ ->
  • 07 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Leather, vanilla, & just about every type of cherry flavor you could think of. $49 B+ ->
  • NV Vigne Regali Cuvee Aurora Rose (Alta Langa): Sparkling tale of vanilla, bread and roses. Is there anything that N. Italy can't do? $30 B ->
  • 08 Las Perdices Reserva Pinot Noir (Mendoza): Spice, Earth, Flowers & Red Berry Compote walk into a bar. The bartender says… $21 B ->
  • Quevedo Special Reserve Tawny Port (Porto): Nothing tawdry about this Tawny; honey, smoke, burnt caramel, spices & dried *everything*. $15 B ->
