How to Pair Steak and Under $20 Wine with JustJess

Are you having a steak tonight and looking for a perfect under $20 bottle of wine to complement it? I know I am! I’m cooking up my famous juicy skirt-steak and found a winner to compliment it.

I had to look no further than my nearest grocery store for the Sebastiani 2006 Merlot from Sonoma County to hit the spot.

This rich Merlot has juicy, black cherry pie aromas,  cherry and cranberry flavors with a hint of chocolate and oaky vanilla. The wine is 81% Merlot, 7% Malbec, and the rest is a mixture.

The earthy hints of Malbec really came out, and would make this a delicious pairing w/ that steak or even some nice juicy pork chops!

I would think about getting this wine again, but for around the same price point I might go with Wal-Mart‘s Casillero Del Diablo wine that I reviewed previously.

Check out WCTV in action with Sebastiani Merlot to see if it would make your night!
