Week 4 (March 22-28): Red Blends & Family Recipes

Wine:

2013 One Exception Red Wine and 2015 One Red Wine

Recipe:

RACK OF LAMB WITH CABERNET SAUCE

Directions:

  • Heat oven to 425.
  • Mix together seasoning ingredients in a bowl.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet to medium.
  • If you like you can trim some fat from the racks. You also can slice them in half for smaller racks. Sprinkle seasoning on each rack.
  • Sear each rack on all sides until browned (2-4 minutes tops). Put racks into a roasting pan and bake for 15 minutes to 130 degrees (for medium) or 20 minutes for a light pink medium well. When the lamb is done, take it out of the oven and cover pan with foil and let lamb sit for 10 minutes.
  • While lamb is cooking, make cabernet sauce by melting butter in the searing skillet (do NOT wash out the skillet -- you want the cooked bits of lamb or "fond" in there for flavor). When melted add flour and cook for a minute or so. Stir in other ingredients starting with the wine and beef broth, then simmer for a bit to reduce the liquid. You can add a bit of cornstarch if you want it thicker.
  • When everything is ready you can cut the racks into 2 bone chops or leave it whole depending on your presentation. Serve with cab sauce on the side. The cab sauce is also great on mashed potatoes.

Ingredients:

LAMB SEASONING  

1 ½ teaspoon kosher salt                                        1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon paprika                                                  ½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon onion powder                                      ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

¼ teaspoon dried thyme                                         ¼ teaspoon dried rosemary

¼ teaspoon dried basil                                            ¼ teaspoon dried marjoram

¼ teaspoon dried oregano

CAB SAUCE (USE 1 TEASPOON LAMB SEASONING)

2 tablespoons butter                                               2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

1⁄2 cup cabernet sauvignon wine                          2⁄3 cup beef broth

2 tablespoons water                                                3 teaspoons Dijon mustard

Tunnel Hill Winery

Join Tunnel Hill Winery as we celebrate Washington Wine month by “Tasting Washington at Home”. Each week we will showcase a wine that embodies the essence of Washington Wine. Join us for recipes, special discounts and virtual tasting events. We invite you to tag us when you share your rendition of our recipe of the week or your pairing with our Wine of the Week and we will enter you in our weekly prize drawing.

Week 1: Cabernet & Casseroles

Cabernet Sauvignon is an essential component in our "Setenta". Named to celebrate the birthday of owner Denny Evans, this luscious blend features Cabernet and Malbec with a dash of our Estate Syrah. It's a perfect match for hearty fare and uplifts even the simplest dish. 

We invite you to tag us when you share your rendition of our recipe of the week or your own pairing with our Setenta and we will enter you in our weekly prize drawing. 

This week include a bottle of Setenta in your order of 4 bottles or more and receive free shipping on your order.

Week 2: Chardonnay & Catch of the Day

So we have to be honest…. we don’t make a Chardonnay. While Chardonnay is a Washington staple, Viognier has come to shine in the Lake Chelan Wine Valley. Crisp and citrusy with a hint at the floral we invite you to give ours a try. 

We also invite you to tag us when you share your rendition of our recipe or your own "catch of the day" with our Estate Viognier and we will enter you in our weekly prize drawing. 

This week include a bottle of Viognier in your order of 4 bottles or more and receive free shipping on your order.

Week 3: Syrah & BBQ

We like to think of Syrah as the crown jewel in our collection. Luscious, dark and regal, it holds its own against even the boldest sauce. This week we will pair it with one of our favorite BBQ recipes. 

We invite you to tag us when you share your rendition of our recipe of the week or your own pairing with our Estate Syrah and we will enter you in our weekly prize drawing. 

This week include a bottle of Estate Syrah in your order of 4 bottles or more and receive free shipping on your order.

Week 4: Sacrilege & Family Recipes

Our "Sacrilege"Red Blend is our most popular red. A blend of Pinot Noir and Syrah, it makes a fantastic pairing for comfort foods and those dishes special to our hearts. This week we will pair it with one of our family favorites. 

We invite you to tag us when you share your rendition of our recipe of the week or your favorite family recipe paired with our Estate Sacrilege and we will enter you in our weekly prize drawing. 

This week include a bottle of Sacrilege in your order of 4 bottles or more and receive free shipping on your order.

Week 5: Riesling & Noodles and Dumplings

You may not know this but Riesling is our winemaker's favorite white. Its versatility makes it a perfect pairing for a variety of dishes. This week we will pair it with a dish that is spectacular in its simplicity.

We invite you to tag us when you share your rendition of our recipe of the week or your own pairing with our Estate Riesling and we will enter you in our weekly prize drawing. 

This week include a bottle of Riesling in your order of 4 bottles or more and receive free shipping on your order.
