Mrs. Cohn Zohn is making crab curry tonight. Not sure what wine to serve with it. I’m thinking champagne. Any ideas?

    Yes, Champagne, it’s New Years. Happy New Year !

    It is actually called sparkling wine unless it’s really from Champagne.

    Let us recommend Sonoma Valley’s Gloria Ferrier.

    A nice ale will go better with curry. That said if you’re set on wine, go with a white blend.

    I would go with Guwertztraminer. If you want less sweet try Reisling. Both are great paired with spicy and/or curry

    A dry to semi-dry (Between 12.5 and 13.5% alcohol) Reisling or Gevurtz would be perfect. Husch and Navarro
    (Mendocino County in Anderson Valley) make some of the best. But a sparkling rose from Roederer Estate or Schramsberg would make for a nice pairing too. Happy New Year, Lowell. Hope you won’t be following Padecky anytime soon.

    Gewurtztraminer is great with spicy foods, but you’ll have to drink a lot of it to cover up the taste of curry, which I call Vishnu’s Revenge. Good luck!

    Kokyo Buffet in Hayward believe it or nut,often has – in season I suppose- King Crab as all you can eat. With friends and their wives,one could crack open those King legs and claws like an Olympic crab eater. She ate me under the table..well,so to speak.
    I like the Coconut shrimp too. BUT!!! Asian Delight in Hayward has the very best “Chinese take out food” I EVER ate. Cheap prices,long lines in a small store. I cant get how much they give you for the price..and its ALWAYS fresh..dumping it into the food basins as you stand there. Orange chicken that’s the best in the world. Melts like butter.
    Mind you- no pretensions of “authentic” But just a big take me back to the 60′s with great tasting takeout food,and nobody gave a damn about MSG or calories. Just flavor. The best at that in the eastbay.

    Lowell, it has been a pleasure reading your column over the past year. Hope you and Ms. Zohn have an excellent New Year.

    As far as wine pairing? I’m trying more Chablis. Chardonnay grapes, but a bit more minerality than we get from CA Chardonnay.

    Happy new year, Mr. Cohn. I read a transcript of a recent harbaugh press conference, where he apparently winked at you and called you his “guy”? I didn’t know you two were chums. Well, it humored me. Best wishes for 2014!

    David Shaw put his foot on the brake,and Michigan’s coach had his team flying around. Michigan is good,but Stanford could have won if the HC could adapt. He couldn’t. 2 losses in 3 bowl games for Shaw.

    My song of the day Lowell? 77 Sunset Strip. Tell me you don’t feel cool hearing that song?
    I can see me in a black suit and smoking a cig. Driving a Vette.

    And I don’t have a suit and never have smoked. And I have a Toyota.
