Beery Pairing: Yule & Pecan Pie

IMG_6785-Edit

Despite the odd well-intentioned fruitcake, fruit and nuts are a winning combination during the holidays. A new twist on this combo can be achieved from the fruit essences of the Yule and the nuts nestled in a warm pecan pie. The nuttiness of the pecans will already be accentuated by sugar in the pie, but the cherry tones from the Yule will offer a balancing sweetness with subtle tartness against the nuts. This year, serve a small glass of Yule to go with your dessert; your guests will be impressed!
