Post-Valentines Day dinner, what wines would you suggest?

Cookiefiend | Feb 11, 2008 02:17 PM

I know there are so many requests like this, and I'm joining the club.

We're having 4 couples over for dinner the day after Valentines Day and are having a bit of difficulty deciding what wines would be the best pairings. We do have a few ideas and would also like to know if they would work too...

Tarragon Grilled Prawns, Spiced Honey Crisp Apple & Fennel Salad and a
Honey Lemon Pepper Glaze - I thought a Reisling would go well, we have 2 Dr Loosen Erdener Treppchen 2006.

Braised Collard Greens, Grilled Portobello Steak and Roasted Beets with
Apple Cider Reduction and Balsamic Cream - I thought a Pinot Noir, perhaps even opening a Burgundy and an American Pinot Noir for a comparison.

Roast Rack of "Viking" Lamb, Root Vegetable Risotto, Asparagus and a Shiitaki Mushroom Glace - I dunno know here, first thing I think of is a Cab...

Chocolate Grand Mariner Truffles with Fresh Berries and White Chocolate
Sauce - I have some Muscats, Moscato d'Asti, and (I just ran down to see what was there) a Freemark Abbey, Edelwein Gold, late harvest Johannisberg Reisling - which might be interesting.

Any input would be appreciated!
TIA
