So you already know that Steak and Cabernet Sauvignon are a match made in heaven. But have you ever topped it with Pesto?

Cabernet Sauvignon and T-Bone Steak Pesto Tacos make the perfect pairing because the fat in the Pesto bind to the tannins which allow the fruit in the wine to ‘POP’. The nuttiness of the Parmesan cheese in the pesto also compliments this fuller body style wine and trust me when we say that these T-Bone Steak Pesto Tacos with this Cherrycream Dark Cabernet Sauvignon are divine.

Are you crazy about Pesto too? This pesto was a mixture of different herbs such as basil, parsley, cilantro, and baby spinach. Use what you have in your fridge and feel free to swap out pinenuts for pistachios such as this one here.

Happy dining friends!
