A Rioja Crianza is the Perfect Pairing with Lamb Chops

For a quick and easy midweek meal we cooked lamb chops with tomatoes and herbs from Supercook.

The chops are baked in the oven with a mixture of canned tomatoes, tomato purée, paprika, basil and marjoram.  We served the chops with carrots and roast potatoes. 2014-10-08 18.25.02

We opened a bottle of Navajas Rioja Crianza 2010, a medium to full-bodied Spanish red from the Wine Society.

We detected red berries and vanilla on the nose and then intense red and black fruit flavours.  The finish was long, smooth with spiciness and vanilla.

We thought this lovely wine was a perfect pairing with the lamb chops.
