IntoWine asked our panel of experts to share their favorite wine pairings for ribeye steak: With such a vast sea of deep, dark, red wines available to the public, it can be difficult to identify a single wine for the perfect Rib-eye Steak . For me, this tender cut of meat takes me to California’s Central Coast, and to the rich, bold flavors of Justin’s Cabernet Sauvignon (about $25). Based in Paso Robles, Justin has been making estate Bordeaux blends since the early 1980s.
Carbonara sauce is a classic Italian white sauce, rich with a combination of ingredients that can include cream, ham or bacon, egg yolk, butter, olive oil, and plenty of cheese.

From Thanksgiving to an everyday dinner, what's the best wine to pair with turkey that's been cooked in a traditional roasted style? IntoWine asked our experts for their recommendations: Turkey is such an American dish. It is ubiquitous at Thanksgiving. Therefore, I think it calls for an American wine. While Zinfandel will work, I am going to recommend thinking about an Oregon Pinot Noir. The Pinot’s from Oregon straddle the line between being fruit forward California versions and more earthy wines like those from Burgundy. There are so many made in many different styles and price points. I think one of the best values out there is the basic Sineann Pinot Noir Oregon . While this top produce r (whom I have known for over thirty years) makes individual vineyard bottlings, the basic version can be found for $30 or less. It is very good now and will last for five to ten years in your cellar. Great up front cherry fruit with a complexity from using different vineyards. It will go great with Roasted Turkey. - Loren Sonkin , IntoWine.com Featured Contributor and the Founder/Winemaker at Sonkin Cellars.
The tomato, native to western South America and Central America, was first introduced to Europe when Cortez brought seeds back from Montezuma’s gardens in the early 1500s. Thirty years later, the fruit was introduced into the Spanish kingdom of Naples, became popular and marinara sauce was born.
I think diners who shy away from even trying raw fish believe they are in for a strong, fishy taste and slimy consistency, when really, a fresh example can contain beautifully subtle, gentle flavors and a clean texture. Its understated taste explains some folks’ need to drown each bite in soy sauce and wasabi. Sashimi is a good start for neophytes, since it omits the seaweed, which itself can be an acquired taste.
