That left us with the reds. Here the richer, fruitier Merlot became quite assertively tannic and dry with the Angus Beef Deluxe, while the Valpolicella ended up seeming lean and weak and actually highlighted the sweetness of the roll used for the sandwich. That left us with the Malbec, which was perfectly balanced for this pairing. The combination of moderate tannins and acids allowed the wine to sort of slip right in behind the burger, adding a bit of a fruity element to the combination but otherwise working to reinforce all that one would want in their Angus Beef Burger!
