Episode IV: Spicy Reds


Next » 1 of 8
What to Drink Now Spicy red wines are as varied as the spices you might find in them, though they theoretically share spiciness. What that spiciness is, black pepper, white pepper, a rustiness, spice box, allspice, we may not agree on; though the point is that there is some sort of innate spiciness that makes the wines appealing on a certain level.

As I explored this group of wines, I was stuck once again how each of these wines could be easily slotted into an alternate category, so I’ll take this opportunity to repeat the premise for this series of articles. It is not to definitively classify wine, but rather to create connections between certain wines that may share a character trait, which in turn, helps you find wines that you might enjoy. That’s all. It’s simply to have some fun, open some eyes and extend the great trip of discovery to some less obvious places. I hope you enjoy it!
