Cabernet Sauvignon (Cab'-er-nay Sow'-vin-yaw (n) )

Posted on 11-03-2017

What is the Cabernet Sauvignon wine grape and what food do you pair it with? 

 Aged Blue Cheeses like Camembert or Stilton, Gouda, Aged Jack cheese, Roasted Chicken, Filet Mignon, Goose, Game Birds, Meatloaf, Prime Rib, Risotto, Grilled Squab, Short ribs, mushrooms, walnuts

 When drank young, Cabernet Sauvignon requires a dash of bitterness to marry with and this is why a little char on a steak or a burger is a perfect compliment to this type of wine. A prime new york steak, with parmesan crusted short rib, and root vegetables served in red wine jus delivers a perfect formula for the ultimate pairing.
