The beef barbacoa is fairly intensely flavored and negated much of the difference between the two taco shells. The whites really didn’t have much of a chance here, though the Chardonnay exhibited a fine leanness with the beef, somehow gently accentuated by the toasty sweetness of the wine. The Jam Jar began to find its groove with the beef, offering nice sweet/spicy interplay of flavors that reduced the overt sweetness of the wine. The Pinot, on the other hand, just lacked the intensity necessary to pair with the beef.
