Normally, I would've ordered white wine with this dish. However, the small group of people I went out with wanted to split a bottle of wine (50% off the bottle price) and everyone wanted red--which is why I asked for advice. I didn't want to be Debbie Downer so I thought I'd take the initiative to pick the one bottle of wine the 3 of us were going to split.
Thank you all for the helpful advice without the judgement. It was a very good wine. :)
I'm going out tonight and I don't feel like ordering white wine or a sparkling wine when I'm out with friends tonight. I know I'm having Pan-seared scallops, roasted cauliflower, pancetta, and parsnip purée with agrodolce. What wine(s) would go well from this list?

Does anyone know where to get some Toffutti products or Earth Balance in or around the Whittier area?
I know the Stater Bros. carries the Earth Balance tub and so does the Trader Joe's, but is there another market around here that carries more items, like the Earth Balace butter sticks or Toffutti's Better Than Cream Cheese?
