Salmon with roasted beets and forbidden Rice
Merlot is one of the most versatile red wines out there. Equal parts earth and fruit, this wine is well suited for a multitude of cuisines. The sweet earthiness of beets bolster both aspects of the Merlot. Infused with fresh herbs, red wine, citrus, and nutty rice, the details really begin to pop. Salmon is a wonderful fish to pair with red wine, as it has the richness and integrity of flavor to take the edge off firm tannin, but not get lost in the wine’s depth.
