Cabernet Sauvignon is a well-known red wine. With its origin in France, it has gained popularity throughout the world. It is an acidic wine made from the red wine grape variety that goes by the same name. It is known for its myriad flavors like blackcurrant, black cherries, blueberries, and many others. The grape variety is grown in diverse climates like Australia, Columbia, and California.

To get the best taste, one needs to pair it with some equally-palatable food items. Indian food is known for spices and its richness. The taste makes it a perfect blend with a glass of red wine. Sonal Holland, a connoisseur of wine suggested some rich-on-taste Indian food items to pair with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon; read on.

For starters, one can go with masala chickpea or kidney beans. It is made out of cream and tomatoes. Spices can be added as per taste. This Punjabi dish along with the wine, makes for a great combination, she said in an Instagram post.

For the non-vegetarians, what is better than seekh kebabs. “Prepared on skewers, seekh kebabs are minced lamb marinated in a blanket of Indian spices that work deliciously with a robust expression of Cabernet Sauvignon.”

Another suggestion is pork vindaloo, which is a traditional Goan dish. Fiery, tangy yet sweet, the dish goes quite well with the wine. Calling it a rich expression of Indian cuisine, she said it pairs brilliantly with the acidic in fruity nature of the wine.
