Need to pick from my stash, stores are closed. Wine for Greek lamb with lemony potatoes?

  • 2

Hello all, at the last minute I realized I did not shop for a specific wine to serve with my Christmas dinner. My mind is total holiday mush. Anyway, I am making Greek-style lamb (oregano, rosemary) with lemony potatoes and asparagus. I need to choose a red wine from my stash, and I'm not sure which is the best choice.

  1. Perhaps the Languedoc 05, though asparagus is not going to go with any red wine that I can think of.

    1. Steve is right about the asparagus. setting that aside, personally i'd probably opt for the Rioja to pair with the other components.
