Lamb Jam: Licking My Chops

by Shona Milne on October 31, 2009

lambjamI think I am still full from Lamb Jam Seattle on Sunday afternoon. I’m happy to report that there will be a second Lamb Jam next year. Ewe must attend next year if you missed it. This event had area restaurants create a lamb dish and pair it up with a Washington wine.  While it’s hard breadlambto choose a favorite mine was Serafina Moroccan Spiced Lamb and Eggplant Jam with Lentils and Feta paired with 2006 Red Blend from Col Solare. I found two new wines; Donedei Wines 2004 Merlot and Buried Cane 2007 Syrah. I will be looking for both of these wines. The Buried Cane retails for about $13.00, a great buy. The Donedei 2004 Merlot is from Red Mountain and is very assertive with its flavor and very smooth.
