For Knoll, the cut of meat is almost as important
for cabernet pairings as the marinade or rub. " The
younger the wine, the more fatty and char-forward
the cut of meat needs to be-like a ribeye steak, " he
says. " You want to subdue the tannins in younger
wines and highlight the fruit. "
Both fats and proteins tame the tannins in
cabernet sauvignon, allowing the subtle notes
of fruit and spice to be more pronounced on
the palate. While fat and protein bind with the
tannins, there is a perception in the mouth that the
tannins are softened. The char masks the tannin
by overpowering it.
Despite its leaner profile, brisket is one of
Knoll's go-to barbecue meats to pair with Jordan
Cabernet Sauvignon. " Because of the low-andslow
cooking process, the meat develops an outer
crust, or bark, that adds a wonderful textural
dimension to the pairing, " he says. " Brisket was
made to go with Bordeaux-style reds like Jordan.
Rich, complex flavors develop in the meat during
the long cooking time, just as a cabernet gains
complexity in the barrel. You just can't replicate
that with a steak on the grill. "
While Jordan Cabernet pairs beautifully with
beef, Knoll's absolute favorite pairing is a perfectly
cooked rack of Sonoma lamb. " Lamb with the
cabernet is just a given, " he says. " It's a slam dunk. "
Knoll recommends applying rubs to large cuts
of meat two hours prior to grilling or smoking,
allowing the rub to react with the protein and
come to room temperature.
Now, the burning question is what to do first:
fire up the grill or open the bottle of cabernet?
" Brisket was made to go with Bordeaux-style reds
like Jordan. Rich, complex flavors develop in the
meat during cooking time, just as a cabernet gains
complexity in the barrel. "
