Warm Mushroom Crostini

Mushrooms are truly a great friend to all red wine, but most especially when seasoned with Winemaker’s Pantry™ Spice Pairing for Cabernet. Their earthy flavor brings out the rich complexity of our blend, enhanced by its woody notes of juniper and rosemary, and undertones of allspice and espresso.
This quick mushroom sauté is a perfect crostini topping for entertaining when served with your favorite big, bold Cab…or use it to crown a thick ribeye or filet mignon steak.

  • 1/2 stick Butter
