Recommended wine: Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sparkling Rose
Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé are my top picks for Mexican. 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 Brooks Willamette Valley Pinot Noir with a 4.3 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 25 dollars per bottle.
Brooks Willamette Valley Pinot NoirA beautiful perfumed nose of rich cherry jam, Thanksgiving cranberries with grated orange peel, morel mushrooms and black truffle. A wonderful high note of black tea, leather and potpourri. The wine is so luscious in the mouth, coating the palate with rich, dark cherry, warm raspberry, red currant and black plum. There is a wonderful earthiness of portabella mushrooms on the grill, roasted vegetables, bacon fat and smoked meats. This Pinotfinishes with ripe fruit, earth and complexity and a hint of tomato leaf and earthiness. Just delicious!
