If you are looking for a wine that suits a juicy steak, a cabernet sauvignon is a good choice whether it has some on it or is current vintage. The powdery tannin structure of this grape is great for food, although be careful and don’t overcook that steak. The McLaren Vale is known for their softer and juicy style of Cabernet and this one has all the hallmarks: liquorice, blackcurrant, and mint. With seven years behind it, this is a spicy, red that is in its prime and drinking well for five years or more.
