Top 10 Steak Wines

House Wine 2014 Steak House Cabernet Sauvignon

House Wine 2014 Steak House Cabernet Sauvignon has blackberry and black cherry notes

CABERNET SAUVIGNON

This is a blend of (mostly) Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Grenache made with grapes sourced from Washington, California and Idaho. Yes, Idaho — believe it or not, the Gem State is one of America's up and coming producers of quality vinifera. You'd be hard-pressed to find another steak mate with as much personality at this price point, which has been House Wine's forte since its inception in 2004. The Steak House cab is lean, but by no means a pushover. The fruit — dominated by blackberry and black cherry notes — shows front and center, with a fair degree of spiciness bringing up the rear.

Suggested Cut: Flat-iron steak seared on a charcoal grill

Rating: 13/20

Price: $11
