Pair a Washington state red wine with a standing rib roast for an unforgettable meal
Savvy match: When pairing wine with your standing rib roast or any prime rib, the buttery, fatty flavors of the meat will tame the high tannin in a powerhouse like a Bordeaux-styled Cabernet Sauvignon-based red wine. You could go with a Bordeaux or a Napa Cabernet; there are many great choices; however, I am an unabashed fan of Washington red wine. Walla Walla, Red Mountain, Yakima Valley — so many wines you could enjoy. A dish like this is the best time to pull out that special bottle.
