The Month for Pairings

Once in a while moons align and the right wine matches with great food. I hope you enjoy some of my favorite pairings as much as I do.

Côtes du Rhône and the grill: Consider any food with a char or sear marks—from grilled veggies to a big steak. The deep fruit of a Château d’Aigueville Côtes du Rhône (around $14) pairs wonderfully with beef and veggies off the grill.

Chocolate and red wine: Is there anything better? I did a tasting and accidently came across this combo—Vina Robles cabernet (around $20) and sea salt chocolate caramels—decadent, and sometimes you deserve this.
