No Rules When Matching Wines

In follow-up to my post from the other night regarding guidlines for wine pairings, I uncovered this buzz-worthy article from Stacy Slinkard (my idol) at About.com that I wanted to share. I love this quote:

"Rule #1 states that there are NO rules when matching your favorite wines with your beloved recipes, sure there are hints and popular, even “famous” matches, but ultimately the best match is what pleases your palate. It is truly personal preference. That said, here are some hints to help you determine what might be palate pleasing for you personally." -Stacy Slinkard, Wine.About.com
