Whether you’re preparing one of the classic French recipes such as Tournedos Rossini or Steak au Poivre, or enjoying a fine Wagyu beef or Kobe beef filet prepared simply on the grill with nothing more than sea salt and pepper, an extraordinarily flavorful and rich steak deserves a big Cab.
Our “Wine Insider” Wagyu beef or Kobe beef wine recommendations are as follows:
"Textbook 'Mis En Place' has quickly become the gold standard for undiscovered boutique Napa Cabernets that taste like $100 but can be secured for far less."
"The new Textbook is emblematic of the ripe, approachable yet-age worthy style we've come to expect from this boutique gem. This is a graceful Cabernet that maintains a sense of elegance rarely found in pure Cabernets at this price. Only 12 barrels were crafted this year so trust us, if you enjoy majestic and age-worthy Napa Cabernets jump on this tiny bandwagon while there's still room because once the critics and collectors discover Textbook the prices will soar like an eagle…
and we'll be sold out."

"Bure Cabernet is ready for 'prime time' enjoyment tonight (after decanting) with any grilled meats and has the structure to age well for the next 5 – 7 years, peaking around 2017 in our estimate."
The remarkable Buré Family Cabernet blend is sourced from the vineyard adjacent to Dominus (99 points Robert Parker) and the original Opus One vineyard, called Beckstoffer To-Kalon in the heart of Napa. Robert Parker recently dubbed Buré Family Cabernet wine maker Luc Morlet "one of the most talented Frenchman crafting wines in California."
"This truly majestic new 100% Cabernet is worthy of one of our highest-ever scores due to its voluptuous texture, memorable fruit flavors, and potential to age longer than many Napa reds that sell for double the relatively conservative price. This new Bure Cabernet features deftly balanced blackberry, cassis, black cherry, leathery tobacco, and a hint of toffee from the new French oak. The plush tannins are extremely well balanced across an ULTRA silky smooth texture and mouth coating flavors of cocoa and baking spices that linger on the seductive finish for a full minute. Bure Cabernet is ready for 'prime time' enjoyment tonight (after decanting) with any grilled meats and has the structure to age well for the next 5 – 7 years, peaking around 2017 in our estimate."
