Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For February 24, 2014

Vinted on February 24, 2014 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!

  • 09 Tres Sabores Petite Sirah (Napa Valley): How about that; the decor of this former man cave had seen the touch of a feminine hand. $45 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 09 Merry Edwards Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley): The haul might not be a long one, but the seats are leather & the living is large $60 A- >>find this wine<<
