Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz, 2018

The fusion of Cabernet Sauvignon and the richness of shiraz make way for a fragrant and balanced taste. Oak and tannins are subtly present, but what dominates is a vintage, cake-like profile akin to Black Forest. To deliver its full flavor, pair it with your favorite steak and spring vegetables like mustard greens and asparagus.

Ridge Vineyards Monte Bello, 2016

The luscious purple-ruby color comes from the rich blend of blackberry, anise, violets, and barrel spice. Bursting with bright acid and a powerful complexity, this cabernet sauvignon-based gives a tremendous finish. Bone-in prime rib or pan-seared filet mignon pairs beautifully with this bottle.

Parallel Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, 2017

If you are looking for a fresh and long but spicy finish, you should check out this lush four-year-old. A brawny concentration of dark chocolate, spice cake, black currant, and prunes give it a firm and full-bodied structure. Midpalate, there are touches of dried herb, sage, and tobacco for a complex layer. Overall, it will work well with steak dishes.
