Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For May 12, 2014

Vinted on May 12, 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!

  • 10 La Rochelle Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley): Roses are red, they're also in here, this didn't rhyme, OK whatever. $48 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 08 Domaines Schlumberger Les Princes Abbes Gewurztraminer (Alsace): It hath been declared, the spicy food shall be brought forth! $22 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 10 Kilakanoon Killerman's Run Shiraz (Australia): It's just not worth the effort arguing against its delicious, minty statements. $20 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • NV Vallformosa Origen Brut (Cava): Seemingly, it's thoroughly – and happily – unaware of its own refreshing, apple-laden talents. $20 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 11 Charles Krug Family Reserve Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): The hall of the Mountain King gets all prettied up. $75 A- >>find this wine<<

  • 12 Efeste Sauvage Boushey Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc (Yakima Valley): There's nothing wild or savage about this refined, lithe beauty. $25 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 10 Dylan's Ghost Hell Hollow Red (Napa Valley): Convening with angels and devils alike, and almost certainly beguiling both groups. $50 A- >>find this wine<<
