Fresh Cherries with Riesling Zabaglione

Yield 6 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup cherries and about 3 tablespoons zabaglione)
Zabaglione is an Italian dessert sauce traditionally flavored with Marsala wine. We use a fruity California riesling for a fresh twist. For an even richer and thicker sauce, you could use a late-harvest semillon or sauvignon blanc.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups pitted sweet cherries (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup riesling or other slightly sweet white wine
