Wines that Go with Game   Nov. 13, 2004

What would you serve with Venison? With Pheasant? With Turkey? With Bass?
Some ideas from “Johnson’s”:
Game Birds: your best red wine
Duck or goose: a rich white
Pigeons: lively reds
Rabbit: young Italian reds
Venison: big-scale red
Sea Bass: fine/delicate whites
Salmon: fine white burgundy
Swordfish: full bodied dry white
