Recipe Notes

Wine Recommendation: Tassel Ridge Iowa St. Croix Rosé

This recipe for Moroccan Inspired Chicken has spice from the cayenne pepper, and it calls out for a wine with fruit and body. Tassel Ridge Iowa St. Croix Rosé is the perfect match. Iowa St. Croix Rosé is a dry rosé with strawberry, raspberry, peach, and nectarine notes and a slightly drying finish. It’s made from St. Croix grapes grown in our Mahaska County, Iowa, vineyards, and is best when served chilled.— Bob Wersen, Owner, Tassel Ridge Winery
