Wine 9

Hi Folks,
My wife and I have been craving pasta with lobster and roasted tomato. We're also going to shave some bottarga on top at the end along with very light pinch of chili flakes. It doesn't sound like a great dish to pair with red wine but here's the thing: We have 2 nice-ish bottles of Oregon pinot that we've been thinking about for some time and I'm not convinced that it won't work. The other part is that we're taking a much needed vacation and will be assembling this meal in our hotel which will have a full kitchen. Should be fun but I won't be bringing more than the 1 bottle of wine so if you think the pairing won't work, I'll bring something else. To clarify, this won't be a marinara or anything like that. Just a small amount of dark, cooked tomato with the lobster and bottarga tossed in.
Thanks in advance for your help.
