So, like, what is this stuff, anyway?
I taste a bunch-o-wine (technical term for more than most people). So each week, I share some of my wine reviews (mostly from samples) and tasting notes with you via twitter (limited to 140 characters). They are meant to be quirky, fun, and easily-digestible reviews of currently available wines. Below is a wrap-up of those twitter wine reviews from the past week (click here for the skinny on how to read them), along with links to help you find these wines, so that you can try them for yourself. Cheers!
- 12 Villa Raiano Taurasi (Campania): Comes on soft and minty at first, before darkening up & then punching you squarely in the gums. $45 B+
- 12 Pietracupa Taurasi (Campania): Black fruits that have tight grips on the spiced-up cigars that they are smoking with abandon. $50 B+
- 13 Luigi Tecce Poliphemo (Taurasi): Supple, spicy, and sexing it all up; be ready for bedroom eyes during and after this one. $73 A-
- 13 San Salvatore Gillo Dorfles Aglianico Paestum (Campania): Off-the-charts levels of spice, licorice, & espresso bean excellence. $55 A
- 15 San Salvatore Jungano Aglianico Paestum (Campania): Expressive, gripping, and dark, like a really good foreign language thriller. $25 B+
- 11 Fontanafredda Serralunga d’Alba Barolo (Serralunga d’Alba): If you’re a fan of precision, then take aim at this spicy number. $50 A-
- 14 Talbott Kali Hart Estate Grown Pinot Noir (Monterey): Something earthy and meaty lurks below; it’s worth digging for, too. $25 B+
- 14 Talbott Kali Hart Chardonnay (Monterey): Undoubtedly delicious; but it’s also undoubtedly guilty-pleasure levels of delicious. $23 B+
- 15 Matetic EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc (Casablanca Valley): Did someone say oysters? Cuz could have sworn that someone just said it. $20 B+
- 15 St. Urbans-Hof Nik Weis Wiltinger Alte Reben Riesling (Mosel): All of the lemon, gooseberry and spice, and none of the fat! $18 B+
