Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For October 21, 2013

Vinted on October 21, 2013 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!

  • 12 Davis Bynum Virginia's Block Sauvignon Blanc (Russian River Valley): Svelte it's not; but it *knows* that it looks good to you. $25 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 10 Cambria Barbara's Clone 667 Pinot Noir (Santa Maria Valley): Sort of like Bat-Man; being burly doesn't mean you're not awesome. $80 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 10 Cambria Clone 23 Pinot Noir (Santa Maria Valley): Sexy & fresh, and promises it won't tell anyone about its abv if you won't, ok? $52 A- >>find this wine<<
  • 10 Cambria Bench Break Pinot Noir (Santa Maria Valley): Makes a quiet entrance, but you will soon take notice of her at the party. $34 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 11 Cambria Bench Break Chardonnay (Santa Maria Valley): Just because you are big, doesn't mean that you can't bust out fresh moves. $32 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 11 Cambria Clone 4 Chardonnay (Santa Maria Valley): A finish that joyfully, energetically & fervently toasts artisanal bread for you. $27 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 11 Cambria Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay (Santa Maria Valley): The food-friendlier version of the over-maligned ABC style Chard. $22 B >>find this wine<<
  • 11 Cambria Tepusquet Pinot Gris (Santa Maria Valley): Likes the thermostat set a bit too hot, but otherwise is fun to hang out with. $17 B >>find this wine<<
  • 09 Caduceus Sancha Tempranillo (Arizona): Sights set squarely – & tangily – on Spain; you'll want to set yours on hearty roast meat. $60 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 11 Page Springs Cellars Vino del Barrio Blanca (Arizona): Kicking out the vibrancy like Rockette, only she's dancing in a lychee skirt $16 B >>find this wine<<
  • 11 Page Springs Cellars Vino del Barrio (Arizona): Ready for burgers, preferably with Native American flute music in the background. $16 B >>find this wine<<
