Carmenere: The Other Red Meat Wine

With grills firing left and right it’s time to take a look at Carmenere, a great wine for grilled red meat!

Carmenere: The Other Red Meat Wine I am a big fan of Carmenere, and really appreciate the way the fruit and savory flavors of a well done Carmenere pair with beef. Not just any beef, mind you. What comes to mind is a beautiful sirloin steak from grass-fed beef grilled over a hardwood fire. The steak should not be a monster; not so thick that one needs to really char it to get it warmed through, but rather about an inch thick so that it gets a nice caramelized crust, yet remains just barely past rare. That is my ideal Carmenere steak, and while this detail may seem a bit excessive, I do have my reasons.
