Chimichurri Steak & Cabernet Sauvignon
With the new year comes new resolutions, and oftentimes, we make vows to focus on our health. But keeping a healthy resolution doesn’t have to mean sacrificing flavor or- more importantly– wine. In fact, it’s quite the opposite! Red wine, such as our Cabernet Sauvignon, helps with cholesterol, heart health, and is full of antioxidants.
Heart healthy wine? It’s like music to my ears.
And the joy will only continue when you discover how perfectly our 2015 Archgate Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon pairs with this unbelievably flavorful chimichurri. A profoundly delicious Argentenian condiment, chimichurri is packed full of fresh ingredients and is so good that it’s deceivingly healthy! Atop a juicy grilled steak, it’s everything you could want in a meal.
You’re bound to feel like you’re cheating on your resolution with this pairing, but you can revel in the fact that you’re staying right on track!
