Season-Changing Wines

September 6, 2016

With fall approaching, you may start reaching not only for a sweater in the evening, but for a different wine as well. Our editors select five wines that illustrate the variety of tastes and textures available for seasonal drinking.

Managing Editor Joe Czerwinski: “As temperatures cool, my cravings pivot from crisp refreshment to reassuring warmth and richness. But that doesn’t necessarily mean tannic red wine. Toast the change of seasons with Paul Jaboulet Aîné’s 2014 Condrieu from its Domaine des Grands Amandiers (95 points, $124). This lush, concentrated Viognier combines cool-weather weight with summertime echoes of apricots and honey.”
