Well, it flunked the asparagus-artichoke test by recommending
chardonnay first with no mention of riesling. When you ask it which
chardonnay it recommends, it gives 855 choices. Probably good for
general ideas.

In my very nonscientific test, it recommended "Alto Adige" as a wine
pairing. That certainly leaves a bit of latitude (no pun intended) in
your choice.

Well, my first query was for "Steak au Poivre" and the two categories
it recommended were Bordeaux and Zinfandel. Plenty of wiggle room
there, too.

I liked Merlot for chicken puttanesca (trouble imagining dish, much
less match) and pinot grigio for risotto with truffles.
