    Weekend Wine Notes: Six Spicy, Savory Whites

    Need I say more? Half-a-dozen very attractive, lively, spicy and savory — some more spicy than savory, some more savory than spicy — white wines designed to quench the thirst, caress and engage the palate, and accompany all sorts of the imaginative cuisine you’re so good at creating — or, you know, a package of fish sticks from the freezer (the only form of seafood we ate when I was a child).

      Square Wine Bottles

      Wine Ponder - - 3 readers - Through the many years of winemaking, we’ve seen lots of various specialty wine bottles.

      Square Wine Bottles

      … give it blackberry and raspberry jam. The Merlot fills in the mid-palate and gives it plum and juiciness. I’m not sure why they call it three red blend since there are five types of grapes in it. But then once you taste it, who cares… It really is a nice blend from Paso Robles.

      2010 J. Lohr Cuvée Pom, Paso Robles

      …2010 J. Lohr Cuvée Pom, Paso Robles The color is a glass-staining purple/black. The aromas jump from the glass – gobs of jammy blackberry and boysenberry fruit, notes of blueberry, cassis, and a whiff of saddle leather and caramel. In the mouth, the jammy black fruits keep pumping, coating the palate. The tannins are velvety and fine-grained…
