Red Wine for our Seafood/Quail Menu

wawajb | Mar 18, 2009 10:58 AM

We're trying to choose a red wine to offer during our wedding reception and have run into a bit of a roadblock.

Menu:
Duo plate of seared tuna medallions and a boneless quail stuffed with leek, bacon and crab
Leek & Pinenut Risotto
Asparagus

Not exactly red wine friendly. The bar manager at our venue recommended either a shiraz or a red zin, but my fiance has never met a shiraz or a red zin that he liked. Any other suggestions? They can be as obscure as you like, the wine cellar of this place is pretty amazing, but they do have to be available at a reasonable price point.

Just for reference, they recommended a Picpoule de Pinet for the white, which I had never heard of, but sounds right up my alley from what I've read.
