How to pair red wine with Asian dishes and Chinese takeout

Wine expert Randy Caparoso offers some intriguing wine pairings for Asian cuisine at his Culinary Wine and Food Adventures Blog.

I have enjoyed pairing Gewurztraminer and Riesling with Chinese seafood and noodle dishes, but Caparoso takes it a few steps further, offering ideas for pairing meaty Asian dishes with Viognier, Zinfandel, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Dolcetto, Barbera and Sangiovese.

I agree with his advice at the end of the post - "If wine is to ever become an American staple, it has to be treated like one: as a sensible part of our lives and meals!"
