What does it pair with?

The Bordeaux Blend is a versatile wine that pairs well with a wide range of foods. Its firm tannins and complex flavors make it a good match for rich, hearty dishes, such as grilled or roasted meats, stews, and casseroles. It also pairs well with strong, flavorful cheeses, such as blue cheese or aged cheddar. For a lighter pairing, try Bordeaux Blend with pasta dishes featuring a tomato-based sauce.
