Recipe Notes

Wine Recommendation — Tassel Ridge Iowa In the Dark

Iowa In the Dark is a dry, light red with strawberry notes and toasty oak on the nose and palate followed by hints of caramel on the finish. It is a blend of Marquette, St Croix, and Frontenac grapes grown in our Mahaska County, Iowa, vineyards.
