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!

- 12 Sokol Blosser Pinot Noir (Dundee Hills): Just about equal portions of brightness, earthiness, refinement, and refreshingly accessible affordability. $38 A- >>find this wine<<
- 16 Troon White Family Vineyard Kubli Bench Blanc (Applegate Valley): Both Rhone-ish and Roguish, and both of those in both thoroughly lovable ways. $25 B+ >>find this wine<<
