Recipe: Icewine and Lobster Linguine

linguine You know and love maple syrup and have probably heard of poutine, but what about icewine, another import from our neighbors to the north? Made from grapes that have frozen while still clinging to their vines, icewine is a highly concentrated dessert wine that takes a lot of fruit and labor to make (and hence can cost a lot of money to drink). This luxurious seafood pasta dish begs for the splurge, though: the icewine complements the delicate sweetness of lobster meat, while bacon adds a welcome counterpoint. The overall flavor is otherworldly, and we're thanking Jason Parsons of the Peller Estates Winery Restaurant for it.
