Five autumn milestones, five pitch-perfect wines.
The Moment: The First Snow Flurry
The Bottle: Channing Daughters 2013 Mosaico (The Hamptons, Long Island)
As temperatures drop and those familiar autumnal aromas of fallen leaves and wood smoke fill the air, you’ll be craving slow, simmered braises again. Whether you choose a root vegetable stew, chicken tagine or beef chili, this aromatic white blend’s exotic haze of cinnamon, orange peel and turmeric spices will pair brilliantly. It’s lusciously phenolic in mouthfeel, with a core of dried peach and pear flavors that lingers on and on. —Anna Lee C. Iijima
