1. A Match Made in Heaven: Chef Britny’s Mole
Pair with Stagecoach Cabernet Sauvignon
Keep things saucy with Chef Britny’s Mole. Mole is a traditional sauce and marinade used in Mexican cuisine. Chef Britny recommends it with grilled swordfish or roasted chicken thighs and a generous glass of our Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The fragrant sauce lifts the dark fruit aroma, and the smooth tannin adds a bold and powerful flavor – perfect for mole sauce. A well-made mole sauce requires a full-bodied wine to do it justice. That’s why our Cabernet Sauvignon is an ideal choice. The nose brims with aromas of cocoa, boysenberry, and a salty sea-breeze. Structured tannins and a long finish work nicely with the complex salinity of the Mole. If you ask us, this is a match made in Valentine heaven.
2. For the Love of Lobster: California Lobster Roll
Pair with Haire Vineyard Chardonnay
Rules are merely guidelines for matters of love, food, and wine. Go off the beaten path and whip up a California lobster roll as a Valentine’s surprise! This inventive dish is easy to make but will wow with generous bites of tender lobster meat, a little mayo, and a touch of lemon and herbs. We love it with our Haire Vineyard Chardonnay. The vibrant wine has notes of pineapple rum cake, white peach, nectarine, and coconut cream, giving this understated dish plenty of attitude.
