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.
