F&W Magazine From: Pairing Kendall-Jackson Wines with Kentucky Cooking, Pairing of the Day: 04/2008 edition By happy accident, Amber Huffman combined leftovers of two low-country staples—barbecue and cheddar cheese grits—for a quick Southern fusion meal. It became a Jesse Jackson favorite. Here, Huffman tops her grits with grilled shrimp slicked with a tangy, bourbon-based barbecue sauce. “I seriously have received three marriage proposals over a bowl of my cheese grits,” says Huffman. “I’ve accepted none so far.” Huffman’s rich cheese grits need a wine with some substance, but one that isn’t so tannic and massive that it will overwhelm the sweet shrimp—in other words, Pinot Noir. Kendall-Jackson makes a very good, black cherry–inflected, single-vineyard Pinot, the 2005 Highland Estates Seco Highlands that would be perfect; or look for Kendall-Jackson’s lighter, more peppery 2006 Vintner’s Reserve.
