Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For April 20, 2015

Vinted on April 20, 2015 binned in wine mini-reviews

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 Fulcrum Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (Anderson Valley): It most certainly smokes them, because it most certainly has got them. $55 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 12 Fulcrum Landy Vineyard Petite Sirah (Russian River Valley): Remember the Sara Ramirez Got Milk ad? It's pretty sexy like that. $42 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 12 Hickinbotham Trueman Cabernet Sauvignon (McLaren Vale): You'll need pencil sharpeners & plenty of coin for all the graphite here. $75 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 12 Hickinbotham The Revivalist Merlot (McLaren Vale): Alive, earthy, excellent, and above all else, eccentric and damned proud of it. $75 A- >>find this wine<<
