Enormously elegant and food loving. Highly Recommended.
I found this wine a little too opulent and not as food-friendly as the other examples, but it would likely be pleasing by the glass. Recommended
I kept returning to the wine throughout the meal: it’s an extremely admirable wine, especially for its price. Recommended.
“Tasting” wine, so-called, isn’t only about taste, about the wine’s flavors. It’s also about its color, aromas, temperature, and texture across our palate. Tasting wine requires us to tune into a mix of signals entering our sensorium, then make sense of the mess.
In another recent article about wine and food pairing, I worked from the vantage point of trying to select the best wine to pair with any given food. But here the situation is reversed: you’ve got a wine picked out and now need some tricks to prepare the food so it’s more friendly with that wine.
