Cabernet State of Mind

5 Delicious recipes and pairing beyond red meat

Chicken

OK, this is actually pretty easy, not that I’m going to cheat or anything. There are so many chicken recipes that use wine as a braising liquid, and that creates an obvious way to serve Cabernet with chicken. The flavors of the wine serve as a bridge between dish and glass; it’s an old French secret, and Italian, and Spanish, and Portuguese, and...

Anyway, since we’re going with a Mediterranean staple here, it opens all sorts of doors, though I’ll keep things simple by looking to the south of France to supply the wine. The Pays d’Oc region is big, like really big, and blessed with exceptional weather and a lot of recent investments. So look to the area for great values in modern style wines, perfect for pairing with a little braised bird!

    The only pairing I question is the Tuna...and ONLY because some red wine and fish combos can make the fish taste metallic - something about the omega acids interacting with the tannins in the wine. A relatively tannic wine such as Cabernet COULD make your fish taste like aluminum or mercury! I've never tried grilled Tuna with Cab, but I can tell you from experience - Pacific Salmon and Cab=BAD!!!! Beyond that, knock yourselves out - food and wine pairing is about taste, not propriety and tradition!
