This icewine had ALL of the tropical fruits - guava, passionfruit, pineapple, and a touch of baking spice(nutmeg). Pair with plain lemon meringue pie or cheesecake

Valle De La Orortava, Tenerife, Canary Islands Do, Spain

Tons of white pepper, cherry, raspberry, and a little more white pepper. Pair with roast duck, quail, or dark-meat chicken.

Château Mont-Redon 2015

Châteauneuf-Du-Pape, Rhône A.C., France
96 days ago

Courtney scored this wine: 92/100

Both velvety and structured, this wine has inviting aromas of strawberry, cherry, cinnamon, and violets; ample acidity; white pepper, mint and basil. I would pair with a cheese tray to let this beautiful wine shine!

The Magician

Reif Estate Winery The Magician Shiraz Pinot Noir 2016

Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
96 days ago

Courtney scored this wine: 91/100

Lots and lots of black pepper dominates this wine along with dark cherry, plum, leather and a hint of licorice. Black pepper tickles the tongue. I would do this with... pepper-crusted steak?

Niagara River, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
96 days ago

Courtney scored this wine: 89/100

Cherry, plum, tobacco, and basil. Tangy and savoury. would go well with herb and garlib rubbed roast pork loin.
