Pair Up

Posted in District of Columbia by melissamccart on March 20, 2009

Though I didn’t drink green beer on St. Patrick’s Day, I tried a delicious spring wine at Adour, poured by one of my favorite sommeliers, Ramon Narvaez. It’s a Verdejo from the Spanish region of Rueda- -the 2008 Valdelainos. This wine reminded our table of grass and passion fruit and certainly pairs well with spring. It’ s terrific alone for a first pour and complements the cucumber vinegar-marinated hamachi or the sunchoke soup on this month’s menu.  Valdelainos just arrived and is worth a detour to the St. Regis for a taste.
