For an upcoming weekend menu, I'm looking to pair some nice wines for three different meals. If possible, but not necessary, ( we can use a Repour) I’d like to use a wine for multiple meals. I'm aware it is hard to find a perfect pairing with several options, especially since we cook relatively non-standard, so feel free to suggest to meal-specific but something that goes for multiple is a plus. No worries if it is sub-optimal, I'm trying to gain experience and see where it fits and what it fits with specifically. The meals are not necessarily eaten across the evenings in the order listed. Also my companion often makes changes to the recipes, e.g., we might not use an ingredient but will use the title components.

The first is Bean Tomato Pizza (Recipe: http://www.eatingwell.com/reci...uree-fresh-tomatoes/)

The second is a Lamb Filet with Cauliflower Roasted with Smoked Paprika and a Cumin Yogurt Sauce (Recipe: http://www.thisgirlsrecipes.co...iflower-with-garlic/ and sauce from https://omnivorescookbook.com/cumin-lamb-burger/)

The final one is a Jackfruit Slaw Bowl (Recipe: https://www.lazycatkitchen.com...led-jackfruit-bowls/ .

What would you recommend? We have a fairly varied cellar (though some notable wines are lacking). It can be found here, if you are willing to have a look: https://docs.google.com/spread...Ro8/edit?usp=sharing

What would you recommend? We have a fairly varied cellar (though some notable wines are lacking). The reason I ask is to learn better food/wine from an experienced community! Also, if there are wines that should be drunk sooner rather than later, please let me know. Also, if there are wines that are more budget-type, could you let me know as well? Trying to organise a priority-queue in the cellar (inherited and aging rapidly). And if there are keepers - ones that will age for a good while yet, feel free to inform me as well!

As example for the former, I think but am not sure the Chateau Lafleur de Haute-Serre 2006 Malbec is high overdue and should be drunk soon. As an example of the second, the Baron de Charette Monopole Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2008 Chateau De Darcy is more of a budget wine? As an example of the third, the Taurasi 2008 Feudi di Fan Gregoria Aglianico should stay for a while.

Man, you lost me at bean tomato pizza. That said, the Bodegas Olarra goes with so many things, I'd consider that.

The wines are pretty young but with that lamb I'd be tempted to open that Castillo Viejo from Uruguay or a Taurasi or that Bodegas Abad - I've had it there with lamb and it's wonderful. But then most of the reds will go with lamb.

As far as jackfruit slaw, I know jack about jackfruit.

GregT - weren't you the one with a computer virus a few years ago?   If you just clicked on a link from someone you don't know, that's one way of getting another one.   

I'm no expert on wine pairings and not willing to click on any links, here are my two cents:

Perhaps a Rose with the bean-tomato pizza.   Young, red wines from the Rhone, especially that are heavy on syrah, would probably be the sweet spot for me.  I had a 2000 Petite Sirah from California that would have gone nicely with the lamb and smoked paprika.

I know jackfruit, and I love eating it raw whenever I can find it on the east coast.  What else is in the slaw?  Jackfruit has a clean, slightly sweet taste, with a bit of citrusy finish.  If it were in a tart as a dessert, I'd pair it with something like Domaine des Baumard Quarts de Chaume.

I'm really sick of all the new members who are popping up here just to post spammy content with questionable links, reposting (not quoting) someone else's posts from 10 years ago, or posting text they've lifted from another website. 

Not sure if these are bot accounts or what the deal is, but they're killing what little remains of this forum. 

I've been reporting the posts whenever possible, and sometimes they posts are removed, but they do need to figure out a way to prevent people from registering these spam/bot/phishing accounts in the first place.

Also note that the only ones selling stuff have only 1-3 posts to their name.  I ignore these along with the anoyomous [sp] stuff listed above.  I was in the computer industry for years.  I do not click on any links, nor do I answer any caller on phone that I do not recognize.

Never heard of Jack fruit either.

Damn DD, you have a good memory. And damn again, you're dead right. I actually thought about it after a few minutes and did a clean-up of my computer.

Duh!
