Wine with maple-rum glazed salmon

priscilla_ | Nov 16, 2009 10:32 AM

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)
Twice-baked potatoes.
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.
