Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For May 7, 2018

Vinted on May 7, 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!

  • 14 Halter Ranch CDP Cotes de Paso (Adelaida District): Deftly matching up against your robust spare ribs with a spicy, chewy ease. $33 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 16 Lieb cellars Reserve Pinot Blanc (North Fork of Long Island): Oh, you're not from Europe? Wow, could've fooled me, bro. $20 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 15 Dutton Goldfield Emerald Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir (Green Valley of Russian River Valley): Dark berries, meet Dark Rea; Dark Tea, meet Dark Berries. $62 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 15 Paul Jaboulet Aine Beaumes de Venise Le Paradou (Rhone): Violets galore!!! Enough to make you want to type "violets galore" with exclamation points at the end. $24 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • NV Loimer Brut Rose (Niederösterreich): Attempts to be zesty, and both familiar and exotic at the same time; and it basically nails it. $32 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 17 Leyda Pinot Noir Rose (Valle de Leyda): Move to the head of the class! Strawberry, pith, & an ability to pull its weight with verve. $15 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • NV Laurent Perrier Brut Nature Ultra Brut (Champagne): Kind of like drinking a phaser beam, only it's set on stun, and all in a good way. $68 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 12 Barone Pizzini Rose (Franciacorta): Zesty, substantive, lovely, and at turns absolutely stare-you-in-the-eyes, I-knew-it-was-you-Freddo deadly-serious. $45 A- >>find this wine<<
  • NV Warre's Warrior Finest Reserve (Porto): Not shy about its fruitiness, its expressiveness, or its hot-under-the-collar mouthfeel. $19 B >>find this wine<<
  • NV Sandeman's Founders Reserve (Porto): Juicy stuff, and also as solid a pick for a dessert companion as its weighty palate implies $19 B+ >>find this wine<<
