Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For February 18, 2013

Vinted on February 18, 2013 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!

  • 11 Two Hands Sexy Beast Cabernet Sauvignon (McLaren Vale): For those who equate lively, complex and occasionally brooding with sexy. $42 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 10 Chateau de Berne Terres de Berne Rose (Cotes de Provence): Bringing bargain rose-petal Provencal flair to sexy-up your Asian fare. $11 B >>find this wine<<
  • NV Andre Bourget Cartagene Vin de Liqueur (Languedoc): Has urge to provide sweet fig-and-nut after-party; is well-equipped to deliver. $20 B >>find this wine<<
