Recipe Notes

Wine Recommendation: Tassel Ridge Steuben

Steuben is a light, fruity, semi-sweet, easy-drinking style rosé with cherry and apple notes and just a hint of cinnamon on the nose and cherry and apple flavors on the palate with a slightly spicy, tangy finish. Made entirely from Steuben grapes, Steuben is perfect with medium intensity flavored foods. Serve chilled.
