This seems like a simple pairing. You’re cooking with Cabernet so why not drink a cabernet with the meal. I am going to go against that. Stags’ Leap Petit Sirah will work well with the flavour profile. Petit Sirah is an inky black wine with big berry flavours and powdery tannins. It has a little more sweetness than most reds but it also has great tannic bitterness that gives the wine balance. The deep flavours of the braising liquid and the meat will work perfectly with the big fruity richness in this wine from the heart of the Stags' Leap District in Napa.
