Beef tongue stew in red miso wine sauce at Aburiya Toranoko

Another nice evening at Aburiya Toranoko in Little Tokyo.
The wine pairing of the night was their beef tongue stew in red miso wine sauce with 2009 Gramercy Cellars, Pepper Bridge Vineyard (Walla Walla, WA). The stew was so tasty with the very tender meat with the deep-flavored sauce. And the wine (73% Merlot, 25% CS, 2% PV) synched with this dish so nicely.

After so many dishes, for "shime", we enjoyed rustic pork belly yaki udon (stir-fry udon noodles). Oishi~.
