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. You could try Dutton-Goldfield Emerald Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.9 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 58 dollars per bottle.
Dutton-Goldfield Emerald Ridge Vineyard Pinot NoirThe 2016 vintage of their Emerald Ridge Pinot is especially focused and lively, beautifully showcasing its Green Valley roots. Bright cherry, cigar box, and rhubarb pie aromas lead the way, followed by darker scents of blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry blossom after time in the glass. Savory notes of thyme, cardamom and clove provide an extra layer of complexity. The mouth is full of sweet cherry/berry plush fruit, carried on firm tannins, giving the wine that lusciousness that keeps you coming back for more. Dark cherry pie with nutmeg spice echoes in the energetic finish. The salty, tangy notes of an aged goat cheddar bring out the sweet fruit in the wine, as does a savory smoky glazed ham, or mushroom bruschetta.
