Dear Barbara: What would be a good food match for a really outstanding, velvety Zinfandel? — Sophie from Lockeford
Dear Sophie: I’m a believer that you should drink what you like, not what someone says you should drink. I know there is some truth in saying that some wines can overpower your food, or are so light that the heavier food takes over, but I have never really gotten into wine pairing. There is something to be said, however, about pairing a fine Port with chocolate and a good Cabernet with a great steak!
