Serving Wine: Why the Glass Matters

BPT

In general, the best glasses to enhance the bigger and bolder flavors of most red wines should be taller and have a larger bowl than glasses meant for serving lighter or more delicate wines. Larger glasses allow a wine to breathe more and permit the wine’s flavors and aromas to develop more fully. For this reason, it’s also best to fill each glass only about one third full when serving red wines, to encourage more aeration.

Pairing BBQ Flavors With Bold Wines

When you’re grilling cuts of beef like brisket, tenderloin, a juicy steak or ribs and using potent spices and flavors like classic Kansas City or Memphis-style barbecue sauce, cabernet sauvignon is a great choice to balance those intense flavors. For example, within The Federalist’s portfolio of wines celebrating America’s heritage, the Federalist Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon is a medium-weight red wine with a good grip from tannins, in wine speak —which means the flavor and body of the wine is strong enough to hold up to the bold, smoky and spicy flavors of your meat.
