Steak and Wine

The majority of us would agree that the best wines to go with red meat is red wine. Even I a devoted white wine fan agree. Having a steak it must be red. Maybe!

What is the best red to enhance the experience of a perfectly grilled steak? Well, not everyone agrees.  The most common answer among the average wine drinker is Merlot. However, most so-called experts who write about wine often go with Cabernet Sauvignon. Malbec is often chosen as the best wine for a rare steak.

The experts, of course, have a wine for every which way you wish to cook your steak or the type of steak or the amount of fat in the steak. Let's not get carried away. If you pile on the sauces or BBQ sauce you, of course, have changed the game. A softer lighter, perhaps even sweeter wine is best.

After the Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon a Syrah makes a good choice. 
Some wine drinkers actually like a Zinfandel  Okay that is their choice.

When it comes right done to it why not just select your favourite wine. 
I have once or twice even been so bold as to order a Bacchus wine with my filet magnon. Maggie Hoffman Managing editor os Serious Eats calls drinking only reds with steak an old and Antiquated way of looking at food pairing.

Many believe the best wine of all is Champagne or sparkling wine.
