Poll on wine with steak

Post by Oscar »

Wife was being a smarty pants hence this poll.

Personally, I love a nice Shiraz or full body Duriff with a nice steak, whether beef, venison etc. but not essential.

I answered "no but..." I'm always happy to drink a good beer but am partial to Australian Shiraz too. We can also occasionally get pretty decent Petite Sirah from California, so I'll second your durif 👍🏼 although I think the Californians more often blended with Zinfandel - perhaps our American members can correct me.

Hell Yes, give me a good Bordeaux or Bourgogne or a good west coast (California, Oregon, Washington) Pinot Noir.

A good Shiraz or merlot while cooking, while eating and after get the nod from me. Had some memorable meals of steak with Malbec in Argentina a few years ago too.

I'd rather a ribeye with a frosty Tooheys Old myself. 👍

The movie Tom Jones had a great line: “Wine dulls the mind, but only of a dull man.”
