Hello Snooth!

Posted by drybyduj, May 6, 2013.

I'm new to the site and am looking for advice on wine pairings.  I've had some excellent wines, but have not chosen them myself so I am eager to learn more.  Can someone please suggest a couple of good wines I can serve at a dinner party this week.  I'm serving grilled Moroccan Lamb Chops.  Thanks :)

For a red I would offer any right bank claret ie merlot dominated.For a white,especially if the lamb is spiced I would offer a Vouvray demi-sec or an off dry reisling from Germany or Alsace

Boy, I think you friends are pretty lucky.  Not to cause confusion or conflict, but my knee-jerk response to lamb is cabernet sauvignon.  So , I would normally suggest that you cross the river and look for a left bank example.

 
However, I'm not going to do that.
 
A few years ago my wife wanted to create a Moroccan feast and invite friends over.  We did not have lamb--some salads, Bastilla, Couscous, Lemon/Olive Chicken.  We had an array of wines.  Everybody brought some.  The consensus favorite with that meal was a California Nebbiolo.  You could try an old world version  from Piedmont, but the California ones, to me seem to have a raisiny hint that really complemented the spices.
 
I am pretty excited to hear what you try and how it worked.  Please come back here and fill us in after your dinner.

Hello EMark - Thank you for the reply.  Your Moroccan feast sounds divine!  I was happy to hear your suggestion of the Nebbiolo!  I've done some research already and, from what I've read about it, I am probably going to go with that.  I will let you know how it was.
