Spring Food and Wine Pairing
Rack of lamb is an elegant springtime dish and can be made in under half an hour. Serve it with a side of new potatoes or roast asparagus and pair it with our 2012 Cuvee de L’Abri Rouge!
Rack of Lamb with Rosemary and Thyme
(Saveur Magazine, October 2009)
1 1¾-lb. frenched rack of lamb
Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. roughly chopped fresh rosemary
1 tbsp. chopped fresh thyme, plus 4 sprigs
10 cloves garlic, smashed
Heat oven to 450˚. Season lamb with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a 12" cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add lamb fat side down and cook, using tongs to flip and sear the bottom and sides of the rack, until browned, about 10 minutes. Turn lamb fat side up in the skillet and scatter herbs over the top.
Add garlic to skillet and transfer to oven. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into center of the meat reads 130˚ for medium rare, about 10 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before slicing into chops and serving.
For something on the lighter side, our Viognier pairs with dishes that have an Asian flare such as curries or spicy noodles, and is also a great match for soft, buttery cheeses, such as Triple Crème Brie.
