Estela’s Thomas Carter on a Few of His Favorite (Wine) Things

If there’s a takeaway from Tasting Table’s mini-roundup of Estela Wine Director Thomas Carter’s “Seven Essentials,” it’s that he’s handsome. And on top of it. Carter picks out everything from the wines he’s into right now to the notebooks (Moleskine, naturally) he uses and his favorite wine key (the Pocket Rabbit). But his most important tip is to think of wine like music and choose it based on how you feel: “The biggest mistake people make when choosing a wine is not assessing their moods.” [Tasting Table]
