Wine Pairing for Begninners



The server comes by, says
“Hi, my name is…is there
Anything I can get you,
Miss?”
Hands me the wine list.
“Give me
a second,

Please."

White, red
Rosé,
Sweet or bubbly?
This is sort of troubling.

Can’t go with the white,
Taste’s too light-
So bright and uppity,
Feels like committing
To nothing.
What if the entrée’s
Spicy?
The acid in the white
Will heighten the spice
Higher than my liking.

Could always go
With a Moscato or Riesling
But the sweet’s so sweet
It feels false and unappealing.
Other people
Drinking the syrup
Seem happy.
Maybe what I want
Is something dark and heavy.
A Cabernet…
Flavor and Full body
Independent taste
Despite whatever's sitting on
My plate.
I really like Alfredo.
Do you think that it could
Hold it’s own?
How are we supposed to know?
If there’s no dish yet
How do you pick
the wine?
The perfect balance is so
Hard to find.

Every choice you make is
A dozen that you didn’t
And each one leads
To a different
Experience.
If I don’t know who I am
And what I like
How can I possibly

Choose the pair
That’s right?

Forget it.
Do it all another night.

Server is back.
I look up from
The menu
To my blind
Date.

“Just Water
For now.
No lemon,
Please. ”
