Try These Four Favorite Wines With Venison

Try These Four Favorite Wines With Venison

The editors of Petersen’s HUNTING pick their four favorite wines to pair with venison (including one white).

When picking a perfect wine to go with venison, there are some guidelines worth following. Rich reds, heavy in smoke and spice, work well, as do fruit-forward wines from America’s West Coast. Like any rules, however, these are made to be broken, which is why a white wine also makes this list of our current favorite wines for wild game.

HUNP-161100-RI-1 edit

ADELSHEIM WILLAMETTE VALLEY PINOT NOIR 2014 ($32)

Ripe cherries and a hint of spice come together in America’s answer to the Burgundy. Just bold enough to complement heartier dishes like a braised shank or classic stew.

MULLAN ROAD CELLARS
RED WINE BLEND 2013 ($42)

Heavy in overripe fruits and touched with a bit of charred wood, this domestic take on an Old World blend pairs perfectly with grilled steaks or smoked roasts from older bucks.

CAKEBREAD CELLARS SAUVIGNON BLANC 2013 ($30)

Despite the admonition of stuffy sommeliers, it’s not sacrilege to skip the reds in favor of a fruity white. Match this one, with notes of melon and apple, with fresh tenderloins served over a bright vegetable sauté.

CHATEAU PÉRICOU
BORDEAUX 2010 ($13)

Six years from the cask, this classic French red is a little light in body with a dry finish. Be sure to splash a little into the pan as well for a stellar sauce.
