As marijuana goes mainstream, the conversation around it has become increasingly sophisticated with the kind of emphasis on producers, clones, terroir, and even tasting notes that one more typically associates with wine. Here, seven wine professionals share their thoughts of pairing weed with wine.
Randy Clement, Silverlake Wine, Los Angeles, CA: If you are smoking weed (and not eating it) we recommend Massican “Annia” 2014 Napa Valley ($30) for a white. I learned about Massican drinking it by the glass at San Francisco’s Bar Tartine. There is nothing more future and past at the same time than Bar Tartine, and the same can be said for the wines of Massican. Annia is a blend of chardonnay, tocai, and ribolla gialla. More exotic than a High Times centerfold viewed with 3-D movie glasses on.
