| 2010 Rombauer California Zinfandel 750ml|
El Dorado, USA
2010 Rombauer California Zinfandel deep purple in color; powerful aromas of wild berries, clove and plum emerge from the glass. Luscious, juicy layers of black cherry, blackberry and boysenberry integrate with nuances of allspice and burst on the palate. Berry flavors linger for an extended finish.
Our favorite pairings for this wine include pasta bolognese, curry chicken, and lamb kabobs.
Zinfandel is an excellent wine to pair with a wide variety of meats (excluding poultry and seafood). The classic Zinfandel pairing is BBQ and Chili. Pizza, hamburgers, and hearty pasta dishes also work well.
Steak with Mushroom Merlot Sauce Recipe
This steak recipe goes very well with merlot wine - Use some for the sauce, and the rest for your glass!
2 10oz ribeye steaks
2 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 Tbsp butter
6oz shiitake mushrooms
3/4 cup merlot
1 Tbsp thyme
First, salt and pepper steaks on both sides. Heat the vegetable oil to medium high, and then cook steaks for about 3 minutes per side.
Put the steaks on a plate but keep the oil in the pan. Put the butter in the pan, along with the wine, chopped up mushrooms and chopped up shallots and reduce for 5-10 minutes. Pour this sauce over the steaks and serve.
