Recommended wine: Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sparkling Rose
Mexican works really well with Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé. Acidic white wines like riesling or low-tannin reds like pinot noir can work well with Mexican dishes. Sparkling rosé is a safe pairing too. The Lemelson Meyer Vineyard Pinot Noir with a 4.6 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 47 dollars per bottle.
Lemelson Meyer Vineyard Pinot NoirThe 2014 Meyer combines fruit picked at both the beginning and end of harvest to produce a spicy, aromatic wine that combines red cherry and plum with woodsmoke, tarragon, potpourri, and crème brulee. The palate is fresh and lithe, with dark spice carried by loads of red fruit to a long, delicately balanced finish. This is a young wine that will gain in weight over the next year and age gracefully for 10+ years.
