Merlot and tenderloin

AngusPride tenderloin is delicately powerful with rich yet soft, flavors. The perfect complement to merlot's subtle flavor personality of plums, raspberry and chocolate.


Zinfandel and rib eye

As slightly sweet food-friendly wines, both white and red zinfandels can pair well with a range of beef dishes, from rib eye steaks to hamburgers.
