Ribeye Steak and Crane Lake Cabernet Sauvignon Bundle
There’s an age-old myth that red wine and steak do not pair well together. Of course, not all red wines will work perfectly with rib eye steak because they often lack the intensity and tannin to stand up to red meat, and will do little to spotlight their flavors.
But Cabernet is an exception. Cabernet is the most planted red wine grape in the world and has an amazing range. It can be bright and fresh, full and creamy, or something in between, giving it great versatility with food.
The acid in a glass of Cabernet has a similar effect on beef as high tannin in white wine do, cutting through the juiciness and fattiness of the meat. Red wines also tend to taste best when served chilled, which can create a nice temperature contrast between a sizzling steak and a cool sip of Cabernet.
