Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For May 14, 2018

Vinted on May 14, 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!

  • 17 Berne Emotion Rose (Cotes de Provence): The very definition of solid, dependable Provencal rose – bright fruit, pithy brightness, & sub-20-clams. $19 B >>find this wine<<
  • 12 Godelia Mencia (Bierzo): This is basically the friend that you never see very often but everyone really likes and so the parties where he shows up go pretty late. $19 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 17 Simonsig Chenin Blanc (Stellenbosch): Just in case you forgot that CB had an immediately accessible, tropical, zesty side… there's this… $14 B >>find this wine<<
  • 14 Duchman Family Winery Oswald Vineyard Aglianico (Texas): Alright, everyone, listen up and sit up straight, because I think they might be on to something here… $30 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 14 Rodney Strong Reserve Malbec (Sonoma County): Burly, bountiful, bold, and basically bursting at the britches for a big hunk of steak. $40 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 13 Geyser Peak Devil's Inkstand Winemaker's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Alexander Valley): As dark as its namesake, but could be drawing slightly sharper lines between those fruit flavors. $39 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 16 Chalk Hill Estate Bottled Sauvignon Blanc (Chalk Hill): Exotic fruits, enticing nose, juicy ripeness, and big-ass mouthfeel. $33 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 17 Miner Sauvignon Blanc (Napa Valley): Now, *that* is vibrant SB, especially for one of those SBs that's all sexy-like coming from NV. $22 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 16 Jordan Russian River Valley Chardonnay (Sonoma County): Pay attention while you're being beguiled by those peaches, or you'll miss that great zesty finish. $33 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 14 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma County): Still not afraid of the herbal side, much to the continued joy of people like yours truly. $55 A- >>find this wine<<
