Recipe Notes

Please see post for details.
I also mentioned that both red and white wine should work great in this recipe.
I would stay away from the fortified or port wines as they may be a bit too much for this recipe.
For a red wine, a Cabernet or Chianti should work well.
From the white wines, a Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc are good choices.
