Salmon With Roasted Beets And Forbidden Rice – paired with our Napa Valley Merlot
Be the host with the most with this sensational seasonal combination of pan-seared salmon and sweet beetroot. We’ve paired this taste sensation with Merlot, as it’s one of the most versatile red wines out there. Equal parts earth and fruit, this wine is well suited for a multitude of cuisines. The sweet earthiness of beets bolsters both aspects of the Merlot. Infused with fresh herbs, red wine, citrus, and nutty rice, the details really begin to pop. Salmon is a wonderful fish to pair with red wine, as it has the richness and integrity of flavor to take the edge off firm tannin but not get lost in the wine’s depth. Save the recipe, as you’re bound to get asked for it!
Adobo Marinated Pork Chop With White Bean Puree And Citrus Avocado Salsa – paired with the Napa Valley Malbec
This recipe puts an exciting twist on one of the holiday staples of pork. Rather than roasting an entire honey-glazed ham, try adding a bit of spice and freshness with these barbecued pork chops. The adobo marinade pairs with a rich white bean puree and a refreshing avocado citrus salsa to create a pork chop like no other. This dish is both smoky and fruity. This dish’s rich and diverse flavors are an amazing compliment to the complex flavors of our Malbec.
Creamy Mushroom Risotto With Crispy Shallots – paired with the the Napa Valley Merlot
This warm and inviting dish is a welcome meat-free alternative at the Christmas table. The creamy risotto, bold mushrooms, and crispy shallots complement each other beautifully. We recommend pairing it with our Merlot, as the Soft tannins will highlight the unmai flavors from the mushrooms.
