If you got mostly A’s…
You should try Cabernet Sauvignon. This full-bodied red wine is known for bold tannins, and a rich flavor that includes notes of black cherry, black currant, and cedar. Cabernet pairs well with lamb, beef, smoked meats, and firm cheeses like cheddar and hard cheeses.
If you got mostly B’s…
You should try Pinot Noir. This lighter bodied red wine has a higher acidity and a soft, smooth finish. The wine has a complex flavor profile that includes notes of red fruit (cherry, cranberry), red floral (rose), and vegetal notes of beet, rhubarb or mushroom. Pair Pinot Noir with chicken, pork, veal, duck, cured meat, soft cheeses, and medium-firm cheese like gruyere
If you got mostly C’s…
You should try Chardonnay. This medium to full-bodied white wine has flavors of yellow citrus, yellow pomaceous fruits (pear, apple), tropical fruits (banana, pineapple), and sometimes even caramel notes. Chardonnay develops a spicy-bourbon-y flavor when aged, and pairs well with lobster, crab, shrimp, chicken, mushroom, and soft cheeses like triple cream brie.
If you got mostly D’s…
You should try Pinot Grigio. This dry, light bodied white wine is a must-have for summer. The wine includes delicate flavor notes of citrus (lime water, orange zest), pomaceous fruits (apple skin, pear sauce), and white floral notes. Pair Pinot Grigio with a summer salad, delicate poached fish, and light and mild cheeses.
