Reach for a full bodied Washington red wine for a classic food and wine pairing with pot roast
Savvy match: Beef pot roast is a dish many of us have grown up with, and it might be among those most variable by region, family, and season. Slow-cooked and comforting, pot roast brings the rich beef flavor with roasted earthy flavors from the carrots and mushrooms. A full-bodied red wine like a Cabernet and Merlot blend will compliment the beef and umami character of the roasted vegetables. As many wine lovers know, some of the best red wine growing areas in the world are in the Western states of Washington, Oregon, and California, and many wines from the West would pair well with this meal.
This recipe is my recollection and is ready for changes to make it a dish you remember.
