Wine Pairings

Smoky beef tacos
Pair it with: A sturdy yet elegant shiraz.
Extremely food-compatible and vibrant, this spicy, black-cherry-focused shiraz certainly has the heft to stand up to this intensely spiced dish, and it does so with considerable panache.

Top pick: Evans & Tate Metricup Road Shiraz, Australia, $23.
