Recipe Notes

Wine Recommendation—Tassel Ridge Iowa Silky St. Croix

Iowa Silky St. Croix is a semi-sweet red with cassis, black cherry, and mango on the nose; soft black cherry on the palate; and a long, fruity finish. Made entirely from St. Croix grapes grown in our Iowa vineyards, Iowa Silky St. Croix pairs well with seasoned grilled beef, Mexican dishes, or spicy Asian stir-fry. Served chilled.
