Weekly Twitter Wine Mini Reviews Round-Up For September 10, 2011

Vinted on September 10, 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, 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!

  • 07 Miss Vicky Wine (Fleurie): Lives up to Fleurie’s feminine, flowery nature w/ its sexy, candied red berries & a sprinkle of violets. $18 B >>find this wine>>
  • 10 Graff Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese (Mosel): Citrus, apples & stone fruits FTW! For anything from cheese to spicy Indian. $17 B >>find this wine>>
  • 07 Hess Collection Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Blackberry & chocolate are tasty but wrapped up tight (for now…) $48 B+ >>find this wine>>
  • 10 Trapiche Varietals Malbec (Mendoza): Enjoyably simple, easy-drinking, raging bargain of a red plum, cherry-filled quaffer. Gulp. $7 B- >>find this wine>>
  • 09 Trapiche Broquel Pinot Noir (Mendoza): There are vibrant & silky red berries in here. Somewhere, under all that toasty toasty-ness $15 C+ >>find this wine>>
  • 08 Trapiche Oak Cask Malbec (Mendoza): Those oak casks might have had some Funk-tion as well as function. You’d better like em toasty $10 C+ >>find this wine>>
  • 08 Trapiche Broquel Malbec (Mendoza): The dark fruit finish is very long. But also very smoky. Lots of oak, but deftly applied. $15 B >>find this wine>>
  • 06 Chateau Chevalier Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Chocolate & juicy stewed fruit, with sights set squarely on the steakhouse. $24 B >>find this wine>>
  • 08 Cru Appellation Series Chardonnay (Santa Lucia Highlands): Lots of complexity for the price. Lots of butterscotch & booze, too. $27 B- >>find this wine>>
  • 09 Flowers Camp Meeting Ridge Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast): A strong case for a Fort Ross AVA. A ways to go, but this horse has legs! $55 A- >>find this wine>>
  • 08 Littorai Thieriot Vineyard Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast): A bit too much heat in here, but this is one GREAT-smelling, spicy kitchen. $70 A- >>find this wine>>
  • 09 Littorai Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast): Like cherries & raspberries balanced on top of squares of high-end chocolates. $38 B+ >>find this wine>>

  • 09 Small Vines MK Vineyard Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast): For all the charm, we’ve ventured a bit too far into Cola Territory here… $70 B >>find this wine>>
