Alternative Steakhouse Reds

"You have probably heard that steak pairs well with big California Cabernet's and Bordeaux, but do you know why? It isn't necessarily that the beef and the Cabernet work well together, but that the fat and the tannins create a perfect harmony. Cabernet is known for its thick skin and therefore its tannins, which can feel "drying or dusty" on your palate. Steak, especially well-marbled, has a lot of fat, which acts as an eraser to these tannins and smooths out your tongue. The tannins also cut through the fat. You should know that fat exists in other forms like butter, olive oil, cheese, avocado, etc. This means that you can have Cabernet with these foods, too. It also means that other grapes can have tannins, which make for great alternatives to Cabernet when dining at your favorite steakhouse or cooking that perfect porterhouse for two at home. These are some of my favorite undiscovered reds."  - Laura Maniec, MS
