Wine, the fermented juice of grapes, is classified by its region of origin or by the variety of grape from which it was juiced. It may appear in variations of red, white, or blush (pale pink). Those who want wine may choose it by its appearance or even by reading a description crafted by a wine expert, such as a sommelier (means wine expert). But, the true test of a good wine is its price. No, wait, that is the true test of a wine that I cannot afford to buy. The true test of the wine itself is its imparting of sweetness on the tip of your tongue.
But, there are rules about selecting wine, some of which are: Select a red wine to pair with a red meat dish, a white wine to pair with a fish or chicken dish, and a blush wine to pair with snacks by the pool. Which wine should one pair with snivel? That depends. If the snivel is feeble or fretful, I would go with the blush, which would be the wine best served to uncertainty. If the snivel is insincere, then white, which lacks commitment. A bold snivel requires a bold wine: Red. Definitely red.
Wait a minute. Back up. What I said does not work if the delectable dish is an attractive woman, delightful, beguiling, yet she is sniveling about something, and she expects you to figure it out and do something about it. Let’s try this again. The delectable dish is food.
Now, the wine pairing that I suggested works. Mouth-watering, delicious, and flavorful food will be complemented by the right wine. Hold it. I got the title wrong. My article was supposed to be “A Delectable Dish: Whine and Snivel.” A whine is a high-pitched complaint, even a scream! Snivel pairs well with whine.
The pairing does not improve by adding either a mouth-watering dish or an adorable woman. I should probably change the writing. Besides, I found something else. I said complement the dish, which means complete to perfection, which can describe pairing with food. But, if the dish is a delectable woman, it may help to compliment her. That could stop the whining and sniveling, which would improve the appetite for food. By the way, did you know that you can pair wine with food?
