Wine Reviews: Mini Round-Up for May 27, 2024

The post Wine Reviews: Mini Round-Up for May 27, 2024 appeared first on 1 Wine Dude.

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 in a “mini-review” format.

They are meant to be quirky, fun, and (mostly) easily-digestible reviews of (mostly) currently available wines (click here for the skinny on how to read them), so you can get right to the point and decide if they’re for you (or not). Cheers!

  • 2012 Collazzi Liberta Toscana IGT (Tuscany): Stellar. Lots of dark, plummy goodness left in the tank here. $25 A-
  • 2020 Corvezzo ‘Organic & Vegan’ Pinot Grigio delle Venezie (Veneto): Overachieving with lemon drop, pineapple, verve, and lots of floral perfume. $13 B+
  • 2020 Banfi Vigne Regali ‘Rosa Regale’ Sparkling White (Piedmont): Blossoms, herbs, green grapes, and an invitation to party time. $20 B
  • 2020 Bodegas Virgen del Galir ‘Pagos del Galir – Val do Galir’ Godello (Valdeorras): Fun, fresh, floral refresher with an orchard full of of oranges. $21 B+
  • 2023 Chateau La Gordonne ‘Verite du Terroir’ Rose (Cotes de Provence): Fantastically fragrant reminder of why Provence is still the Rose King. $25 B+
  • 2012 Vinkara ‘Mahzen’ Reserve Kalecik Karasi (Anatolia): Aging with grace like a nice Bordeaux, showing stewed berries, oak, cigar, smoke, and earth. Nicely done! $39 A-
  • 2022 Stinson Vineyards Rose of Tannat (Monticello): Tart! Bringing a serious, perky, & rosy game to the table. $25 B+
  • 2022 Rombauer Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc (Napa Valley): Big tropical fruit, big taste, & big bones. $29 B+
  • 2022 Oberon Sauvignon Blanc (Napa Valley): The way it ought to be, grassy and sassy! $20 B+
  • 2014 Montinore Estate ‘Red Cap’ Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley): Putting on an admirably savory and earthy performance. $18 B
