Cooking time

Go for a wine with rounded tannins that blends both power and accessibility. Argentina is known for its Malbec wines. In this region, it has hints of fruit including black cherry, as well as cocoa and undergrowth. You can also make a regional pairing with a Cahors*: it’s a classic!

Some Malbec wines may have tight tannins on opening. Have a carafe or aerator on hand to allow the wine to breathe.

* Cahors is made from the Malbec grape variety.
