Wine – Napa Cabernet

Hestan Vineyards Cabernet SauvignonIn moving on from beer, the next range of red, white and blue drinks to serve is wine, again with a distinctly American feel.

In terms of red wine it simply comes down to which wine you wish to choose. As we reported recently the Miami Herald‘s wine writer, Fred Tasker, wrote that Cabernet Sauvignon is a great wine to have with barbecue food. Tasker wrote: “A good Cab has the powerful, dark-red fruit flavours and body to stand up to the burn.” He recommended the 2009 Hestan Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, which comes from the Napa Valley, but any Napa Cabernet would be ideal.
