Wine Pairings
Perrin Reserve Cotes du Rhone

Pair it with: A Rhône red
The Rhône valley is a great choice for good-value wines. The grenache, syrah and mourvèdre blend makes for a sexy nose of spicy forest berries followed by soft tannins. Perfect with this pork dish.

Our pick: Perrin Rèserve Côtes du Rhône, France, $18.

Tip: Best served with braised red cabbage.
