Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For April 23, 2018

Vinted on April 23, 2018 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-ish 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!

  • 15 Dutton Estate Dutton Ranch Cherry Ridge Vineyard Syrah (Russian River Valley): Bold, dense, but also lithe and spicy; in other words, totally legit. $54 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 14 Robert Mondavi Winery Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Like its namesakes, quintessentially NV in all of the right ways. $62 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 14 Broadside Margarita Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Paso Robles): Vibrant, structured, savory, delicious, and right on the verge of something exceptional. $25 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 13 Schramsberg Cremant Demi-Sec (California): Taking up an address that's somewhere between Main and Dessert $41 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • NV Tommasi Filo Dora Prosecco (Prosecco): Enough crowd-pleasing fruitiness for all-day drinking; and you probably will drink it all day. $16 B >>find this wine<<
  • 17 Kim Crawford Signature Reserve Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough): A little rich, & more than a little expressive; bring your passion for passion fruit. $25 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 11 Ventisquero Grey Glacier Trinidad Vineyard Single Block Cabernet Sauvignon (Maipo Valley): Nary an age wrinkle to be found in this dark, dense, herbal beauty. $24 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 13 Nieto Senetiner Malbec (Lujan de Cuyo): An overachiever that's making its way to the head of the smoky/meaty/spicy class. $16 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 12 Alta Vista Alizarine Single Vineyard Malbec (Lujan de Cuyo): Inky, deep, viscous, plummy, ripe, dense, powerful… looks like somebody unlocked BEAST mode! $50 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 15 Chateau Picoron Grand Vin (Sainte-Colombe): Plummy, modern, but not afraid of heaping on the black olives; keep an eye on this one. $NA B+ >>find this wine<<
