Pairing: This was lighter than I expected from a Cab Sauv., and I had a glass while waiting for my delivery  of “The Kitchen Sink” (Pork meatballs and mushroom sauce over fresh greens, with roasted carrots and delicata squash) from The Meatball Shop.  Once my dinner arrived, the tart cherry flavors complemented the spice in the meatballs  and the dusty tannins were perfect with the sweetness of the carrots.
