I swear to you that I’m not stalking Stephen — he just makes such awesome dishes that I check his blog several times a day just in case he posts more than once recipe.

Anyway…today I got a special surprise — he paired his latest creation with Macari Vineyards 2003 Cabernet Franc. Of course, I was with Beau when he got a few bottles of the wine to share with wine bloggers as part of his revolution, but I didn’t know how quickly the reviews would start rolling in.

I’ve got a couple bottles of this terroir-tastic red (and a couple other upcoming Macari releases) in my "for review" queue…which I may have to dive into this weekend.

Macari Vineyards makes some great wine…check them out.
