Bold red wines command notice. Very full, dark fruits like blackberry are their signature, as well as firm tannins. Earth, coffee, tobacco, and black pepper tones help these wines stand out from the crowd.

Food Pairing and Preparation: These original red meat wines call for steak, lamb, venison, buffalo or goat especially with grilling or charring. Savory soups, stews, and meat pies. Roasts and gamier fowl like duck. Strong flavored cured meats and hard, flavorful cheeses. Sauces of tomato, pepper, mushrooms and black truffle along with anything barbequed add context. Even dark chocolate will be enhanced by these wines.
