Wine Pairings

A berry delicious red.

In this clever blend with syrah and bonarda, Argentina’s signature grape, malbec, proves that it plays well with other grapes, as well as with this beef and veg dish. The taste is all strawberries and dried cherries, with nuances of anise and spice.

Our Pick: La Posta Cocina Tinto, Argentina, $13.
