What Meat Dishes Should I Pair with My Price’s Cabernet Sauvignon? Velvety and fruit-forward, Price’s Block 5 Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect match for meat dishes that can stand their own paired with the wine’s rich, complex flavours. Savour these meat dishes with a glass of Price’s Cabernet, and you’ll never go wrong:
Rosemary-Crusted Beef Rib Roast Studded with Garlic: A holiday favourite, this hearty dish pairs perfectly with Price’s 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon. Its luscious berry flavours are the perfect foil for the rich, garlicky meat. The wine’s tannins complement those in the fragrant rosemary for a sensational dinner you’ll treasure for years to come.
Adana Kebab: This ground meat kebab, a flavourful combination of fresh hot red peppers, ground lamb, ground beef, and lamb fat, preferably tail fat grilled over coals, needs a substantial wine to stand up to both the peppers’ heat and the rich combination of meats. Price’s 2014 Block 5 Cab fits the bill to a tee, with its intense fruit flavours that bring out the peppers’ sweet-hot taste. Rich enough to create a perfect match with the smoky meats, the 2014’s dark fruit flavour couldn’t have found a better partner.
Beef Stir Fry with Ginger: Most Asian foods aren’t particularly a great match with reds, let alone a complex Cabernet. This fragrant beef dish, though, is a magnificent exception. The rich flavour of beef, combined with fragrant ginger, demands a complex, fragrant red to pair with it. Price’s 2013 Cab does the trick. This mouth-watering red’s intense berry flavour levels the playing field with the beef while its tannins intensify the ginger’s bite for a forkful of happiness in every bite.
Roast Duck Breast with Pecan Purée: Take the rich flavour of duck, roast it, intensify it with a pecan purée reduction, and you have pure perfection. Not just any wine will do with such a hearty dish. Price’s 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, though, with its dark fruitiness, gives the nutty pecan flavour added oomph, adding layers of flavour to create the ideal match.
Italian-Style Meatballs: Rustic and hearty these cheesy, herby, and garlic-infused meatballs take on gourmet status when paired with a luscious 2013 Price’s Cab. The deep fruit flavours intensify those of the cheese and meat, while the wine’s tannins layer on additional flavours to blend with those of the herbs.
Beef Bourguignon: This classic French dish comforts like no other with its blend of hearty beef, bacon, carrots, mushrooms, and herbs. Earthy and rich, beef bourguignon needs a stout, fruity wine with enough pluck to stand up to those complex flavours. Price’s 2013 Cab is just the ticket. With its intense fruit character, it makes a fabulous match with the beef, bacon, and mushrooms. The wine has just enough tannins to complement those in the herbs to pull off a perfect match. To further intensify the flavours, use some of the Cabernet instead of the usual Burgundy in its preparation.
With their rich, fruity taste, Price’s Cabernet Sauvignon wines are a no-brainer when you serve rich meat dishes. Keep several on hand for dinner parties starring these glorious meat dishes for meals so memorable your friends will beg you to open your own restaurant.
