Green and Red Zin dinner help needed

foodster | Dec 23, 2007 09:23 AM

We have a bottle of 2003 Green & Red Zin Tip Top and our friends have a bottle of the Chile's Mill appellation. We've been saving them to taste together and that time has finally arrived. Now the problem is we can't agree what to have for dinner. Please help!

Our friends had pork ribs and pizza already this week, so that eliminated my first instinct (what were they thinking? Couldn't they have waited?).

So now we're thinking about a lamb ragu with rigatoni or spaghetti and meatballs. Maybe just simple rack of lamb? Any suggestions?

As for dessert.... if there's any wine left by then... something with dark chocolate for sure. What do you think of mousse?

Also, for a cheese, I know blue cheese is supposed to be ideal, but are there any other cheese suggestions since I am not the biggest fan of blue cheese.

All suggestions (and recipes) are appreciated.
