Vinted on December 11, 2010 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 06 Newton Vineyard Unfiltered Merlot (Napa Valley): Undanceable contrasting groove of ripe/sour black cherry, & supple/boozy mouthfeel $60 B ->
  • 08 Alamos Seleccion Malbec (Mendoza): Three-part harmony of smoke, violets & black fruits; flirts with seriousness, but stays fun. $20 B ->
  • 08 Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler Bernkasteler alte Badstube am Doctorberg Riesling Spatlase (Mosel): Pricey but spicy lemon & mineral party. $33 B+ ->
  • 07 Mollydooker “Carnival of Love” Shiraz (McLaren Vale): Like a pricier version of Tawny Port, except it doesn’t pair with chocolate. $90 B ->
  • 08 Hugel et Fils “HUGEL” Gewurztraminer (Alsace): Only mailmen deliver more consistently than this spicy, floral & fruity stalwart. $24 B ->
  • 06 Parducci “True Grit” Petite Sirah (Mendocino): She ain’t supple, but she sure is fiery & peppery. Saddle up & ride ’em with pride! $30 B ->
  • Espumante Murganheira Grande Reserve Bruto Assemblage 1995 (Beiras): Man could, in fact, live on bread alone, if it tasted like this. €19 B+ ->
  • 08 Soalheiro Reserva Versao (Minho): Seriously structured (& seriously good) food-friendly take on one of the Vinho Verde varieties. €20 B+ ->
  • 04 Quinta do Crasto Reserva Vinhas Velhas (Duro): Deep, dark & savory. Earth & truffle on the nose for the patient (& so be patient!) €30 A- ->
