Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For April 4, 2016

Vinted on April 4, 2016 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!

  • 10 La Mozza Aragone Maremma Toscana (Tuscany): Green herbs and uber-ripe fruit coming together like chocolate and peanut butter. $35 B+ >>find this wine<<
