Salmon Roe: This pairing yields a lovely, fresh, creamy package whose only shortcoming is simplicity. The nuanced flavors of both the wine and the caviar are lost in the pairing.
America's Pride Golden Herring: The fruit flavor of the wine is fairly stripped away by this caviar, and the texture of both is somewhat rough and jarring. Not a good pairing.
American Bowfin: This is a great pairing, one where the fruit of the wine absolutely pops but at the same time all the nuance and complexity of the caviar flavors are well-preserved. Both the wine and the caviar remain fresh and lively.
American Paddlefish: The caviar flavor gets lost here and the creamy, full, nature of the wine really dominates the pairing.
American Hackleback: Killer champagne enhancer. This caviar totally frames and supports the flavors of the wine, building layer upon layer of flavor with a wonderful integration of the crispness of the caviar with the fullness of the wine.
