Weekly Twitter Wine Mini Reviews Round-Up For June 11, 2011

Vinted on June 11, 2011 binned in wine mini-reviews

Uhm, like what is this stuff?
I taste a bunch-o-wine (technical term for more than most people). So each week, I share some of my wine sample tasting notes via twitter (limited to 140 characters). They are meant to be fun and quickly-and-easily-digestible reviews. Below is a wrap-up of the twitter reviews from the past week (click here for the skinny on how to read them), along with links to help you find them so you can try them for yourself. Cheers!

  • NV J.J. Vincent Cremant (Cremant de Bourgogne): Unleashing refined apple bubbly goodness to your palate with vinous kung fu precision. $19 B >>find this wine>>
  • 09 Bastianich “Adriatico” Friulano (Colli Orientali): White peaches, almonds & “scout’s honor” true to the NE Italian grape’s soul. $19 B >>find this wine>>
  • 08 Quinto de Roriz “Prazo de Roriz” (Douro): Drying, dusty and wonderful as the Douro itself. Pass the grilled sausages, please. $17 B >>find this wine>>
