Topped with American

The Burger Somm: Matt Kettmann, Contributing Editor

The Wine to Try: Alma Rosa 2012 Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills), $35

This Pinot’s earthy tannins stand up to the charred meat, the mineral-powered acidity cuts through the cheese, and a bright raspberry character washes down fries better than ketchup.

Matt’s Favorite:

“World-Famous” Jalama Burger, Jalama Beach Grill in Santa Barbara County, California

A 35-year-old recipe from this remote shoreline outpost, it comes with American cheese, raw onions, shredded lettuce, pickles and the house “secret sauce.”
