I've lurked on Chow for a while and finally decided to sign up.
My first question is what wine would work best with the following menu (I'm an absolute novice at wine pairings).
Maple-rum glazed salmon (the sauce is maple syrup, rum, & dijon mustard)
Roasted asparagus (with a little parmesan and lemon)
Romaine salad with pears, blue cheese, and walnuts
I was sort of thinking a Zinfandel or Riesling, but the rum really throws me a curve.
