If you want a red, I'd go for a light one with some fruit. Some of the inexpensive Monastrells (Mourvedres) from Jumilla would be fine, but be sure you stick to the lighter ones, like Finca Luzon, and not the big ones like, El Nido.
We ended up avoiding red all night and had a good selection of whites including
2005 Shibumi Knoll Chardonnay
2002 Dr. Loosen Riesling
2003 Dumol Viognier
2003 Kistler Ducrea vineyard Chardonnay
2003 German Riesling (forgot name)
Started with selection of spring rolls made from duck, ahi tuna, soft-shell crab, etc. Then mango salad (a little spicy but riesling worked well) Other dishes included tofu, curry sea bass, curry chicken, scallops, shaking beef, and seafood and vegetable dish. Nothing too hot so the whites did well. The best part was that the german rieslings had only 7 to 9.5% alcohol so easy to drive home and no hangover.
