#NWTW Week 32: ON TOUR –What To Eat With Your Californian Cabernet Sauvignon


How could I have gone all the way through 3 sets of American wines over the course of NWTW and not at some point pick a burger? Well it couldn’t last could it?

The classic pairing with Cabernet Sauvignon is red meat, and the redder the better. I could have plumped for a steak, or even some slow cooked beef ribs, but that’s not going to work with these gut busting American heavy weights. I think we need to tip the cap to the star of American cuisine, with a perfect burger.

The protein in the meat works great with the high tannins (the mouth gripping particles), so try have the meat as rare as you dare. Pick your favourite recipe and go for it. Just don’t you dare go pick up a McDonald’s!!!

  1. I got to say, that for this one I don´t even think I would see the wine. I would just eat that bastard with so much desire that I would forget about drinking.

      1. that´s true, but by that time I think my cholesterol would have gone so way out of this planet that I would have had a heart attack and died. But died with a smile 🙂

  2. I love that you paired this with a burger! I feel like more often than not (at least in the States) everyone thinks of pairing beers with burgers, not wine. Of course, if you’re just getting McDonald’s than there’s no point in wasting good wine of that kind of burger…
