Linkin’ logs: 10-30-15

Seasonal greetings could be the theme of this week’s scrollin’ highlights:

s'mores• Just in time for Halloween, the ever-clever Madeline Puckette has some pairings for junk food that (she claims) actually work. Travel & Leisure also took a stab at Halloween candy pairings. Mmm, Whoppers and Chateau Musar.

• ‘Tisn’t the season just yet, but with a chill in the air, I’m anxious to try this modernized mulled-wine recipe.

• Headed for a huge hangover: Turns out that elephants also enjoy fermented fruit. Sometimes a little too much.

Bond• I had a ton of fun coming up with an apropos wine for every 007 film. Meanwhile, Decanter looks at the bottles that actually were in Ian Fleming’s novels.

• One of my favorite wine writers (Mike Dunne) profiles one of my favorite winemakers, Jason Drew. I was lucky enough to get to visit his amazing property and write about it last year.

• Finally, an aphorism for all of us:
