Complement Wine with #MooreFlavor

Complement Wine with #MooreFlavor
Calling all wine connoisseurs! Tomorrow is National Wine Day! To honor this fine holiday, why not do some wining and dining? 
 
Since we’ve already paired Moore’s recipes with beer, we decided to pair a few Moore’s recipes with your favorite wines. Wine has a long history as a staple at the dinner table. Pairings we consider "classics" today actually emerged years ago from the relationship between a region's cuisine and its wines. 
 
Fundamentally, when choosing a bottle of wine to sip on with your meal, aim to bring out the best characteristics of the wine. The finest food and wine pairings feature complementary components, richness and textures. 

Here are a few of our favorite food and wine pairings: 

As a light-bodied, silky and sensual red wine, Pinot Noir pairs well with hearty fish, such as this Asian Style Grilled Salmon. 
 
Ingredients: 
½ cup Moore's Original Marinade
½ cup dry white wine
3 cloves crushed garlic
2 tbsp. sesame oil
1 tbsp. grated ginger root
2 6oz. salmon fillets
 
Instructions: 
1. Mix Moore's Original Marinade, white wine, garlic, sesame oil, and ginger
2. Pour marinade mixture over seafood and marinate for 1-2 hours
3. Grill or broil as desired
 
Cabernet Sauvignon, also known as the king of red wines, is a full-bodied wine with dark fruit flavors and savory tastes. Cabernet Sauvignon pairs wonderfully with our Moore’s Filet Mignon

5. Season the filets with salt and pepper on both sides.
