West Coast Chili (gluten free)

This is a fun play on the classic beef and Cabernet Sauvignon pairing. We created a fairly mild chili, keeping in mind that spice usually makes tannin more pronounced. In this case, the sweet potato in the recipe also moves the flavor profile in a sweet and savory direction while adding more richness and texture. Our 2017 North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon is layered with dark fruits and savory olive notes. The silky tannin structure easily carries through to the end and is a wonderful complement to our West coast chili.
