Our wines are very much "food wines:" bold enough to pair with any red meat or game.  But their forward fruit and peppery spices can enhance other dinner courses as well, both paired with the food & used in the preparation.

Two Moon Raspberry Sauce
(Adapted from International Dining with Spice Islands, 1970)

 

2 pkg. frozen  raspberries (10 oz. size) (or fresh if you have!)

C sugar

1 tsp. Orange Peel

1 whole stick cinnamon, cracked

6 whole cloves

2 C McCray Ridge Merlot   (or other dry red wine)

3 T Arrowroot

angel food cake

chocolate ice cream

 

Combine the first 6 ingredients into a saucepan.  Heat to boiling; simmer 10 minutes.  Remove from heat. For a clear sauce, strain out the seeds and whole spices.  (I prefer leaving some seeds and pulp, but I remove the cloves.) Borrow C of the sauce and stir in Arrowroot.  Add back into pan; re-heat to boiling. Remove from heat and cool.  Soak the sauce into pieces of store-bought angel food cake, add a layer of chocolate ice cream, and top with the sauce.
