Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For March 31, 2014

Vinted on March 31, 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 Azienda Agricola Sant'Elena Pinot Grigio (Venezia Giulia): After 5 year courtship, it's finally letting you near its perky melons. $20 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 12 FEL Pinot Noir (Anderson Valley): Herb gardening w/ stylish, pretty black-cherry gloves; & packing snacks of licorice & cola, too. $38 B+ >>find this wine<<

    Shoes covered in funk? Now I'm curious about that one.
