Recipe and Wine Pairing
This recipe includes earthy mushrooms, peppery steak, and soothing and creamy broth with savory notes. When pairing with wine, we look for red wines with good acidity to work with the sauce, along with dark fruit and pepper notes.
Rhone Red Blend: Jaboulet Parallele 45 Rouge ~ $12
Rhone reds work well with this dish because of their black fruit notes and exotic spices. This one in particular has a nice balance of red and black berry fruit, peppery spice, and a velvety texture that plays off the savory and peppery elements of the dish.
Rhone Red Blend: Chapoutier Cotes du Rhone Belleruche Rouge ~ $12
This wine has powerful aromas of dark black berry fruit, raspberry, dark cherries, and spicy pepper, with some boldness and structure on the palate, showing more raspberry and spice. The berry fruit notes will offset the earthy mushrooms and pair well with the creamy sauce and peppery meat.
Pinot Noir: William Cole Albamar Pinot Noir ~ $13
This light-bodied entry level Pinot Noir has some herbal aromas along with some cherry and raspberry. It’s fairly light on the palate with a mix of red berry fruit and spice. If you want something on the lighter side that would still pair with the earthy mushrooms and stand up to the sauce, a fruity Pinot is a good bet.
Carmenere: Errazuriz Single Vineyard Carmenere ~ $18
This wine has a complex balance of dark, spicy, peppery, and rich aromas blended with some tobacco and vanilla. The palate offers blackberry fruit, cherry, and pepper, along with some savory notes with supple tannins and good acidity. This balance of dark fruit, pepper, and savory characteristics is an excellent match for the beef and its savory sauce.
Barbera: Renato Ratti Barbera d’Alba ~ $18
Dark fruit aromas and flavors with lots of black cherry, plum, blackberry, and a chocolate note lead to a hearty full-bodied feel on the palate, with ripe juicy berry fruit, silky tannins, and a spicy finish. The intensity of the fruit and good acidity will balance nicely with the dish.
