Q&A with Jenelle Engleson

Jenelle Engleson, City Winery, Nashville

Which classic grape varietal is the most underrated?
Merlot 

What kind of flavors inspire you most?
Anything that has an offbeat, savory umami flavor. I love wines that are herbaceous, mineral driven, and sometimes oxidized.

Choose a drink to match with pork – and why?
French 75. The lemon and the sparkling are perfect pairs with the fat in pork, and the sweetness would work great with a spicy addition as well.
