Spicy grilled vindaloo chicken
Pair it with: A dark, mysterious zinfandel.
Vindaloo isn’t the most wine-friendly of curries, but this dense, layered “ancient vine” zinfandel works brilliantly. Even at 15 percent alcohol this is a big yet balanced wine with complex notes of blackberries, spicy oak and woodsmoke.
Our pick: Cline Ancient Vines Zinfandel, California, $20.
