Cuban Pork Stew Paired with En Route Pinot Noir

Who doesn't love a little Cuban pork stew?  The winter months are coming and I just got a hold of a great little wine bundle from Far Niente Winery. It includes a Cabernet, Pinot Noir, and of course their world famous chardonnay.  I decided I'm gonna share some of my favorite Cuban recipes and pair then with these delicious wines.  For this post I paired the 2015 En Route Pinot Noir with a Pork stew that's perfect for those chilly winter nights.
