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 Williams Selyem Westside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 140 dollars per bottle.

Williams Selyem Westside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir
A firecracker of a wine, the 2015 Westside Road Neighbors is explosive both in the nose and on the palate. Black raspberry and black cherry aromas are complemented with hints of cedar, allspice, vanilla, and black tea. An intriguing note of celery seed further complexes the outstanding nose. Young and brash, the texture is superb with a backbone of refreshing acidity and loamy earthiness that conveys flavors of bright Bing cherry and raspberry. The wine concludes with refined tea-like tannins and a crushed rock and minerally finish. A wine not to be missed!
