wine

Wine Pairing Recommendations:

• Cedar Plank Maple Bourbon Salmon–Charles & Charles Cabernet Blend
o The wine is bold, rich and textured but not over the top making it the perfect balance for a richly flavored fish like Norwegian Salmon where it can complement its intense flavor without overpowering it.

• Fresh Swordfish with Pumpkin Ravioli–Trapiche “Broquel” Malbec
o This is a rich and slightly spicy Malbec with a long and pleasant finish that can stand up to the rich, meaty flavor of wood-grilled Swordfish. Great pumpkin flavor in ravioli will help to soften the wine and bring out its plum and blackberry flavors.

• Wild Snapper & Shrimp–Eroica Riesling
o The off-dry, sweet fruit forward flavors of Eroica will be beautifully balanced with “mojo-style seasoning” and savory, slightly spicy chorizo sausage and capitalize on the great fresh flavor of wood-grilled Snapper.
