Recipe Notes

Wine Recommendation—Tassel Ridge Iowa Marquette

Tassel Ridge Iowa Marquette is a dry red wine with well-integrated tannins, hints of cherry and blackberry, and spices on the palate. This wine is made entirely from grapes grown in our Mahaska County vineyards and it was aged in French oak for two years. Iowa Marquette is a great complement to prime rib.
