Wine pairing help for dinner tonight

EmBrooks May 14, 2010 06:19 AM

I didnt plan very well so I dont have time to make it to my favorite wine store before dinner tonight which means I will be left to my own devices in the Earthfare wine section...

I am making this:

Most likely serving with saffron couscous and a green salad.

Please help with wine serving suggestions. I am open to red or white.

Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!!

    I'd say a balanced zin like Ridge 3 Valleys, or a fruit-driven '07 CDR. I'm not sure how sweet the lamb meatballs with loquats will be.

      I had not thought of pinot noir, that sounds great! I wanted red and was leaning toward heavier cabs or zins, but wasn't feeling it now that it has finally gotten warm out.

      Thank you!

        1998 Lopez de Heredia Gran Reserva rosado. About $30.

          PInot Noir would be a great red for this dish. I think one from CA or OR would be lovely as they have enough fruit and heft for the lamb and the spiciness. Riesling could be a white option, but I'd do a pinot over a white. good luck, you're dinner sounds amazing.

            You can't go wrong with a nice rose or riesling, but I love to have a big juicy cabernet sauvignon with my lamb! -mJ
