  • Unexpected Pairings with Lebanese Food and Wine

    … Unexpected Pairings Lebanese Food and Wine By Linda Kissam Food and wine pairing is an art that goes back to the beginnings of civilization. As an indigenous cuisine and its local vineyards evolve, they influence one another. Wine was always intended to accompany food so it makes sense that people have always tried to find the perfect match…

  • ‘Captain Kirk’ chooses wine over Romulan ale

    … Sauvignon 2012 ($26; mevushal): This beefy, youthful, firm but well-structured wine exhibits lovely aromas and flavors of red currants, blackberries, blueberries, cassis, cherries and distinct but not over the top oak, with a little spice on the absorbing finish.

    … of it at under $20/bottle I’d be quick to pick it up; at the internet prices I saw the wine offers medium-pricey but massive flavor for a tasty and well-made biodynamic wine.

A fusion of Carignan, Syrah and Argaman (an Israeli-created varietal that is a cross between Souzao and Carignan), the wine displays a slightly smoky dark fruit aroma that leads into strawberry, red cherry, cassis and plum flavors with accents of herbs…
