A Cabernet Holiday
What’s on your wine wishlist this year? For us, it’s easy: Cabernet, all day. Nothing is as perfectly festive as a very nice glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, at least in our opinion. To celebrate we’ve declared our award-winning 2018 Riserva Collection Cabernet Sauvignon the Wine of the Month for December! No matter if or how you celebrate the holiday season, a glass (or two) of this Cab in your hand makes for an excellent evening. For optimal enjoyment, we’re suggesting a few food pairings, recipes included, for our Cabernet Sauvignon.
Cozy, suede-like tannins grace each sip of our Cab, so we recommend a nice red meat to go alongside it. This pairing is classic for a reason, after all. This featured recipe uses ribeye and offers some helpful tips for getting the sear just right. Make sure to use fresh cracked pepper for the steak for a delicious flavor bridge with the wine.

For ultimate comfort on a winter’s day, it’s hard to beat this warm, welcoming classic. Easy enough for a weeknight and tasty enough for an occasion, this recipe offers convenience through the use of an instant pot, so you can have your beef ready, juicy, and tender alongside potatoes and carrots, all seasoned to perfection.

It’s time for some true home cooking. The bold flavors and dark fruit notes of our Cab pair especially well with cheddar and gruyere cheeses, and it’s hard to say no to a serving of homemade mac & cheese, especially at the holiday dinner table. This recipe elevates this comforting classic with some high-quality cheese and the addition of crispy back and peas. Yes, please!
