Weekly Twitter Wine Mini Reviews Round-Up For May 28, 2011

Vinted on May 28, 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!

  • 09 Domaine Brazilier Rose Gris (Côteaux du Vendomois): An off-the-beaten path that’s lined entirely with flower petals & white pepper $13 B- >>find this wine>>

  • 09 Tamas Estates Pinot Grigio (Central Coast): Picnic-ready, but probably playing 2nd fiddle to your Aunt’s casserole this Summer. $9 C+ >>find this wine>>
  • 08 Tamas Estates Double Decker Red (Central Coast): Fare’s cheap, fruit’s driving aggressively, & we’re stopping at complexity station $9 B- >>find this wine>>
