The Case for Wine: Carlos Kainz owns and manages Dulces Latin Bistro in Seattle, Washington, along with his wife, chef Julie Guerrero. "The crisp clean flavors of Redbank Sunday Morning Pinot Gris ($16) complements the citrus and herbal ingredients in this recipe. Salmon could also match with red wine, but it's white for me in this recipe."
