This full-flavored wine is excellent with red meat, game, duck or lamb: try the mythical 7-hour roast leg of lamb with luscious potatoes. This wine will even stand spicy or very tasty dishes. Bordeaux wines traditionally accompany the local porcini mushrooms, so a mushroom omelet or quiche is a good choice. For a simpler and quicker meal, try an assortment of cheeses and charcuteries, or a good old cheeseburger.
