Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For May 28, 2018

Vinted on May 28, 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 Rain Dance Estate Pinot Noir (Chehalem Mountains): Richly appointed; almost ostentatiously so. *Almost*. Bring your grilled salmon burgers. $39 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 16 Chateau Souverain Cabernet Sauvignon (California): Solid, toasty, tasty & campfire-ready; you’ll need to like them earthy & smokey. $14 B- >>find this wine<<
  • 16 Ramey Sidebar Old Vine Zinfandel (Russian River Valley): A pop song that actually has deeper lyrical nuance among the dance groove appeal. $29 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 16 Ramey Sidebar Ritchie Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc (Russian River Valley): Those vines might be old, but NOTHING about this delicious delight is “in the way.” $35 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 15 Ceretto I Vignaioli di Stefano Moscato d’Asti (Piedmont): Light on the spritz, generous on the flowers, and heavy on the pleasure. $24 B+ >>find this wine<<

  • 14 Meyer-Fonne Wineck-Schlossberg Grand Cru Riesling (Alsace): As crystal-clear as a prism, and about as pretty as a refracted rainbow. $40 A- >>find this wine<<
