Stay Rad Wine Blog TV Episode 135: A Blind Wine and Food Pairing

In this episode, Jeff pairs a blind wine with his lunch and dinner.

Food and Wine Pairing:


The wine had some really nice acidity, accompanied by red and dark fruit notes. I paired it with a Grass-Fed Beef Sirloin topped with Onions, Mushrooms, and Garlic Sauteed in Stagecoach Vineyard Olive Oil and a bit of Danish Blue Cheese. The Salad is Romaine Hearts with a Simple Vinaigrette and Parmesan Cheese. The food and wine together provided an overall richness that would be lacking if they were consumed separately.

Wine Tasted:


What I originally picked to be an 8 – 10 dollar Chilean Carmenere, turned out to be the 2012 Chateau Ste Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon from the Columbia Valley of Washington State.

Stay Rad,

    I wanted to comment on your Brunello di Montalcino: Great review! You mentioned it would go well with duck. Did you know that the Big Green Egg slow cooks a duck better than any great restaurant? So, you provide the Brunello and I’ll slow cook the duck.
