Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For April 30, 2018

Vinted on April 30, 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 Andre Brunel Becassonne Blanc (Cotes du Rhone): Floral, perfumed, substantive, sultry, and downright delightful. More lunch dates should be like this. $20 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 15 Famille Perrin La Gille Gigondas (Gigondas): Hails sandy soils, and that's pretty much the only thing that's rough about this sexy little beast. $38 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 15 Ferraton Pere et Fils La Martiniere(Crozes-Hermitage): Everybody was kung-fu fighting… only it was in the smokehouse! $23 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 16 Chateau Peybonhomme-les-Tours Le Blanc Bonhomme (Bordeaux): This little fellow had focus, and this little fellow had tropical fruits, and this little fellow had toast… $15 B >>find this wine<<
  • 14 Portlandia Momtazi Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley): You'll want to bring your spiced-plum-loving side, and that side won't leave disappointed. $39 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 16 Troon Vineyard Red Label Vermentino (Applegate Valley): Both literally and figuratively nutty, and both in fun, intriguing, refreshing ways. $15 B >>find this wine<<
  • 16 Rain Dance Nicholas Vineyards Estate Chardonnay (Chehalem Mountains): Showing off in supple, perky ways why Chardonnay is OR's next – or maybe current – big thing. $30 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 15 Pfendler Sonoa Coast Chardonnay (Chardonnay): Creamy richness, floral loveliness, citric zesty-ness, bank-account-friendly affordable-ness. $38 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 14 Chateau Montelena Calistoga Zinfandel (Napa Valley): Maintains herbal spice and a sense of zing among the plummy juiciness; in other words, it's a playful-and-accomplished balancing act. $39 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 15 Siduri Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir (Santa Lucia Highlands): Black raspberry tea with a side of smoked meat, and they're not just for lunch anymore. $55 A- >>find this wine<<
