Coffee spice-rubbed short ribs & 2016 Bonanno Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
A perfect fall or winter dish, the slow-cooked short rib is rich in texture and full of flavor from the coffee rub and red wine braise. The pairing with the Bonanno Cab is a match made in heaven. The 2016 is in great drinking condition right now, full of classic ripe berry and cassis flavors complemented by cedar, coffee and tobacco overtones and a firm balance of layered acid and tannin.
