Take the Wine Quiz

Which is closest to the wine you're looking for?  The result might not be what you expect.

  • A clean, refreshing white wine with a hint of citrus, from lemon and grapefruit to key lime pie.  A seam of mineral, grass and green apple might be nice.  A wine that would go perfectly with conversation, appetizers, and lighter foods/seafood...
  • A rich, fruity white with flavors of peach, melon and citrus.  For a treat, a hint of coconut, cream and apricot on the finish...
  • A floral, spicy white with apricot and peach fruit flavors, racy acidity and maybe a hint of sweetness.  A wine that would go well with spicy foods...  
  • A lighter fruit bowl red wine with subtle flavors of bright red fruits:  red currants, cherries and cranberries, and if I'm lucky a hint of cinnamon...
  • A medium-bodied red with notes of sweet cherry and dried fruits, maybe some earth, and more pronounced spice than in lighter reds...
  • A rich red with intense flavors earth, black cherry and cracked pepper, and maybe a hint of licorice or blueberry...
  • A full-bodied, sinewy red with dark fruits; blackcurrants, blackberries, superripe cherry, plum, chocolate and mint flavors.

  1. Exploring regional wine makers can be a lot of fun but it can also be overwhelming. The personality that creates regional bottles of wine so much fun to consume also creates it challenging to bottles of wine consumers. Not all of the "rules" about storing, coupling, and serving bottles of wine apply in the same way to regional bottles of wine. So the next time your out buying bottles of wine be sure to ask your bottles of wine maker these important questions. crossword puzzle help
