A Spice Rack in a Bottle.

A wine that we had recently was Artezin. It's a Dry Creek Zinfandel and delicious. The aromas of the wine is of fresh blackberries and black cherry. You can also taste a hint of ripe raspberry. Our dinner guests thought they could taste more subtle aromas of currants, licorice, black pepper and spice.

Because it was unusually warm for Denver in January we were having grilled salmon. We thought we'd have to do a white (hello, we were having fish), but in all honesty the Artezin bottle made a fabulous pairing with our meal. The glass has a great dynamic spice element to it and enhanced our salmon with each and every bite.

It's a lovely bottle for the price point (under $25, we bought it on sale for under $20).
