While exploring South Pasadena via the Gold Line over the weekend I stumbled upon a wine store/bar called Winestyles. Winestyles is a new wine store chain, with an interesting concept. Instead of setting up shop and lining up the zins, cabs and blancs side by side, they organize their stores by the style of wine; bold, crisp, silky, mellow, fruity, rich, bubbly and nectar.
Looking for something to go with that light pasta or grilled chicken? Go for something “silky” with flavors of honey and melon. Or how about something from the “mellow” selection? It goes well with pasta, veal, pork or beef with flavors of cherry, berries, herbs and earth. A great set-up for someone who doesn’t know a whole lot about wine.
