Cabernet Sauvignon is a full bodied wine, high in tannins. A classic pairing is a juicy steak but there’s plenty more foods including hard cheeses, hearty vegetables, rich sauces & even chocolate that make a great match!  

Red Meats: The classic pairing is a juicy steak, which matches well with Cabernet's tannic structure - try with a ribeye steak, grilled lamb chops or roasted pork shoulder

Hard Cheeses: Aged cheeses help to soften the tannins in this bold wine - try with aged cheddar, gouda or parmigiano-reggiano

Hearty Vegetables: Earthy vegetables like portobello mushrooms, roasted eggplant or grilled asparagus can stand up to the robustness of Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Rich Sauces: Dishes with rich sauces complement the complex flavors of the wine. Our picks are beef bourguignon, short ribs with red wine sauce, or pasta with bolognese sauce

Dark Chocolate: For dessert, dark chocolate can balance the strong flavors of Cabernet. Try with dark chocolate truffles, chocolate cava cake, espresso dark chocolate bar

Anyone else hungry at this point? Enjoy experimenting with different foods & a sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon!
