We went to Salty’s for dinner and enjoyed a 2011 Erath Pinot Noir. It paired most nicely with the Smoked Salmon Pappardelle Pasta (pesto cream sauce, heirloom tomatoes, pine nuts, asiago cheese) that we had. We also had the Northwest Seafood Paella (wild salmon, prawns, clams, alaskan cod, smoked chicken and house-made sausage “dirty” rice) and the light pinor noir complimented it, although it wasn’t as good of a pairing as the pasta. Here it is, with my handsome husband:
Once we got home, we lit some candles, popped in a really boring documentary about the Northern Lights (and fully realized how utterly cold it’s going to be on our trip) and uncorked a bottle of the Lambency red blend, from Chelan Estate Cellars. We picked it up on our recent trip to Chelan.
We didn’t quite finish the bottle last night, so we’re continuing to enjoy it tonight. I wish you a very happy Wine Wednesday and will leave you with this glorious photo of our cotton-ball covered #2 and the Seattle skyline from the spot where we got married two years ago.
