Three Wine Regions to Hit in 2018

The close of a year inspires introspection. We assess our successes and failures of the months prior and prepare goals for the 12 to come. For the traveling oenophile, aspirations might include hitting a vaunted region that’s eluded, say Burgundy, or a far flung place that’s appeal is as much in the passport stamp as the wines.   To inspire your travels in 2018, here are three unsung destinations to consider.

Roasted Rack of Lamb with Saint-Emilion

Nothing spells “holiday” like a centerpiece rack of lamb on the table. Not only does it look impressive, it’s surprisingly easy to make. With only a handful of ingredients and very little prep time, this recipe lets the meat tell the story. Fresh herbs and garlic merely complement the lamb’s deep flavor. Given the simplicity of the preparation, one has flexibility with side dishes. Mushrooms are a classic partner, especially with right bank Bordeaux, but greens and stuffing pair well, too.

Understanding Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

If you’ve ever shopped for Oregon Pinot Noir, you’ve probably noticed most bottles on the shelf come from the Willamette Valley. Given 90 percent of the wine produced there is made from this thin-skinned red grape, it’s fair to say Pinot is to Willamette as tequila is to Jalisco.

Try Pouring a Liquid Dessert on Thanksgiving

Pumpkin pie, apple pie, pecan pie. All three typically appear on the Thanksgiving table after dinner. Why not add a dessert wine to pair with this final course? Inexplicably, despite the celebratory nature of the holiday, most hosts and guests jump straight to coffee – and then the couch. But if there ever were a justification for breaking out a magical elixir from the world’s most underappreciated wine category, Thanksgiving serves one up.

Somm Thoughts: Sarah Tracey, Wine Director at Rouge Tomate

I’m feeling myself drawn to lighter-bodied, lively, zingy reds that can take a little chill: Schiava, Zweigelt, Fleurie. After months of endless crisp whites (and more rosé than I honestly care to admit), I love to move more into red territory in the fall and winter as my ‘sipping wine’. But, we have had an extremely warm early autumn here in NYC, so I’m not quite craving the deeper, richer reds just yet.

Roast Turmeric Chicken and Chickpeas with Pinot Noir

November marks the start of holiday excess. Football season, Thanksgiving, office parties. The march towards the year’s culmination leads to overindulgence of both food and drink. So, for this weekday recipe, we turn to the healing powers of turmeric. This root common to Indian cooking has a pale hue when raw, but takes on a deep, finger-staining gold when powdered. It is the spice that gives curry its color, but it lends earthiness rather than heat to dishes. Curcumin is the main active ingredient, known as an antioxidant and for its anti-inflammatory effects. The rest of the dish, composed of roast chicken and protein-packed chickpeas, provides a healthy low-carb foil to the food festivities of the month.
