The 7 Best Red Wines to Pair With Your Steak

When it comes to some of our favorite wine and food pairings, big, bold reds and steaks are the ultimate partnership. Red wine and well-marbled beef work together thanks to compounds that combine in our mouths when we merge them, in particular, protein, fat, and tannins. When we talk about serious love matches there’s always an element of chemistry at play and putting steak and red wine together is no exception. Tannins are the compounds in wine that offer a bit of astringency on the gums and tongue. Steak has fat and protein compounds and when you combine these with the tannins in the wine, the fat molecules and the tannins soften and become more pliable so that everything tastes better together rather than separately. For our top picks to pair with beef, we looked to Napa Cabs, a Pinot from Sonoma, and a few Italian reds, so you have options no matter what cut of steak you prefer.
