Cabernet State of Mind

5 Delicious recipes and pairing beyond red meat

Lamb

OK, so I couldn't resist. While this may not be beef, red meat and Cabernet are a match made in heaven. Lamb is a classic pairing with Bordeaux, but it really is super friendly for all red wines. A preparation like this, flavored with dried chilies, is perfect for a classic Cabernet, one that retains a touch of herbaceousness. The wines of South Africa that rely on the Bordeaux varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are known for their smoky and sometimes herbal edges and have plenty of acidity to stand up to the sweet flavors of lamb fat, making this a no brainer.

    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!
