Yesterday was my birthday and a friend gave me a pretty nice bottle of wine as a gift — a Wairarapa New Zealand Pinot Noir, runs about $80/bottle or so, I would say, and it's the one and only bottle that exists where I live. Well, the weather here has been nuts lately and it's been super hot, probably in the mid to upper 80s with a lot of humidity, so suffice to say my house has been BOILING inside and there is no proper place to store this lovely wine. At the moment I've got it in the fridge but I don't want to keep it there longterm, so clearly the answer is to drink it tonight!
So here's where I need some help. I want to enjoy this bottle with a fantastic and easy-to-prepare meal. Doesn't have to be anything fancy, I just want something that will pair nicely with the wine. I have a couple ideas but nothing is really sticking out at me.
Does anyone here have any suggestions or ideas on what to eat with this bad boy?
