Balsamic Braised Short Ribs
Airfield Estates 2008 AviatorÂ is ripe with cassis, black cherry, spice, smoke and vanilla aromas. The palateÂ is full bodied andÂ smooth with flavors that follow the nose. The Wine Pairing Chef paired it withÂ Balsamic Braised Short Ribs.Â The earthy sweetness of carrots and cippolini onions and satifying mouthfeel of the short ribs balanced Aviator's full bodied smoothness.Â
