Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For March 19, 2018

Vinted on March 19, 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 Susana Balbo Signature Malbec (Valle de Uco): Expertly crafted, resulting in generous sexiness without a lack of determined focus. $24 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 14 Casarena Owen's Vineyard Agrelo Cabernet Sauvignon (Lujan de Cuyo): See, people, this is an example of why I keep telling you that magic can happen in the 30-bucks range… $32 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 16 Badenhorst Family Wines Secateurs Chenin Blanc (Swartland): Racy, ripe, & lovely – since we don't have an R word for lovely handy; a side of toasted nuts makes this a nice bargain, too. $15 B+ >>find this wine<<

  • 14 Miner Family Wines Emily's Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Basically, this is kind of like having a hot date, only it's in a bottle format. $50 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 14 Tommasi Poggio al Tuffo Rompicollo (Toscana): A mouthful of both pronunciation & chewy, plummy fruits; also kind of a versatile, tasty steal. $19 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 17 Mansalto Vino Spumante Brut Rose (Italy): Citrus peel and cherries combine into focused raciness; Sangio showing even *more* versatility, not that we ever doubted it. $NA B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 16 McBride Sisters Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough): Gooseberries and starfruit for days; or, alternatively, Days of Gooseberry and Starfruit. Whatever, it's delicious. $25 B+ >>find this wine<<
