Vinted on May 14, 2011 binned in wine mini-reviews
  • 07 Dry Creek Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel (Dry Creek Valley): The vines are old but their spicy dark juice has several yrs ahead of it $28 B+ #
  • 10 Crios Torrontes (Salta): Boom! Lychee shakes the room! Boom! Lychee shakes the room! Boom! Tick… Tick… Tick… BOOM! $15 B #
  • NV Bear Flag "Dark Red Wine Blend" (CA): Like Iron Man 2, the middle drags but the start & end are actually pretty damn entertaining. $9 B- #
  • NV Bear Flag "Bright White Wine Blend" (CA): The melons & limes are bright, all right, but they also come off way, way too cheerful. $9 C+ #
  • 08 Smith-Madrone Chardonnay (Napa Valley): Like ‘The Rock’ of Nap Chards; big, a bit obnoxious, but in its own way totally brilliant. $30 B+ #
  • 04 Torbreck RunRig (Barossa): For big Shiraz lovers, this is the hedonistic vinous equivalent of owning your own tropical island. $160 A #
  • 08 Chateau Tanuda Noble Baron Cabernet Sauvignon (Barossa): A commoner’s concentration, but w/ herbal minty action worth of nobility. $50 B+ #
  • 09 Hugel et Fils “HUGEL” Riesling (Alsace): Young, agreeable but has a caustic austere side. Best to let him settle down (for 3+ yrs). $24 B #
