Wine Recommendation: Tassel Ridge Iowa In the Dark

I recommend Tassel Ridge Iowa In the Dark from Tassel Ridge because it will complement the spicy Penne Arrabbiata. Iowa In the Dark is a dry, light red wine with strawberry notes and toasty oak on the nose and palate followed by hints of caramel on the finish. A blend of Marquette, St. Croix, and Frontenac grapes grown in our Mahaska County, Iowa vineyards, Iowa In the Dark complements lightly seasoned meat. Serve at room temperature.—Bob Wersen, Owner, Tassel Ridge Winery
