The holidays are here, and many of you are probably wondering what is the best wine to serve with the big meal? Our Wine Steward Mark Jacklich knows a thing or two about wine pairing and has some advice that we hope you will find helpful.
Recommended Pairings for Your Holiday Meal
By Mark Jacklich
If you had your heart set on a red the most versatile ones would be Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, and Syrah. For Pinot Noir I would suggest something with good weight and big flavor, Angela Estate 2010 from Yamhill-Carlton is one that I’ve had recently that comes to mind.
For Zinfandel and Syrah there is some wiggle room based on your personal preference, styles very but either would work well.
Whatever you choose, may you be in the presence of good friends, family and loved ones. Happy Holidays from Bentley’s Grill!
