Vino Libro's Moroccan Chicken is spicy without heat, packs in lots of flavor, with nothing overdone. It is a great plate of wine friendly food. (Along with the Bukettraube, a lot of wines would easily compliment this dish). Being a heavily spiced dish (cinnamon, paprika, ginger), the fruit and residual sugar from the wine played really well with plate. Flavors became brighter and more distinct, and the acids balanced the fruit and extended the length of the flavors.
I liked this pairing a lot. There was nothing wild, or over the top about it, but just a tasty dish, a fun glass of wine, and all for a great cause. The Seven Sisters Bukettraube is also available at Vino Libro's retail shop (connected to the restaurant).
ISAW is great organization. For more info, please check out the video below.
