Cult Vines at Spit & Twit – Crème de la Crème Wines

I attended Wine Twits’ Spit & Twit event last week at City Winery in New York City.  The launch event for this concept was very well-attended and featured over 100 wines from around the world.

While I enjoyed some pretty great wines and met fabulous folks in the wine trade, I especially enjoyed the two wines served by Cult Vines, whose motto is “is to provide the finest wine to discreet connoisseurs and collectors”.

2008 Alder Springs Roussanne Westerly Vineyard

2008 Cult Vines Roussanne

2008 Cult Vines Roussanne

This golden honey colored Roussanne has a beautiful nose, huge mouthfeel, bright apple flavor.  This wine is well-balanced but with higher alcohol content and would be outstanding with food.  Could use some cellaring.  Chardonnay drinkers, move over to this wine.

 

Price:  Around $49

 

2007 Cabernet Sauvignon To Kalon Vineyards

 

2007 Cult Vines Cabernet Sauvignon

2007 Cult Vines Cabernet Sauvignon

It was difficult to pull myself away from the lush fruit aroma in order to actually sip this wine, but I certainly wasn’t disappointed when I did.  This Cabernet offers the darkest, opaque purple hue that’s easy to simply stare at for a while.  This wine is full of ripe fruit, especially blackberry, and young, not at all unpleasant, tannins.  Craved a rare porterhouse after the first sip.

 

Price:  Around $125

  1. Thanks for stopping by and for the great write up! We must say, we saw very few people actually spitting after sipping, LOL.

  2. I was definitely not spitting. Tweeting, yes. Spitting, no.
