Make Home the Steakhouse, paired with our Tempranillo

Wouldn't Dad love this? A perfect way to celebrate Father's Day!

Tempranillo Pairing

The rich taste of a perfectly grilled, bone-in rib eye pairs beautifully with the robust flavors of Triassic's 2018 Tempranillo. The simple combination of the crunch of the black pepper char and earthiness of a baked potato harmonize with the complex flavors of our multi-faceted Tempranillo.

Winemaker Tasting Notes:
This is wine is from Triassic's very first estate grown Tempranillo harvest! Beginning with old world vibes of earth and dirt road, crushed rocks, caramel apples, and dried tobacco before moving to dried figs, tart cherry, seasoned dates, and black peppercorn. The palate starts with crisp, just ripe red fruits before earthier flavors take hold: dank moss, wet forest floor and grippy tannins that are matched with bright acidity and a lingering finish of dried fruit and wet leather. A lovely marriage of fruit and earth! Decant 1-2 hours before serving.


DIY Home Steakhouse Tempranillo Dinner Recipe


Meat Seasonings

Coarse salt, cracked black pepper, dried garlic, smoked salt. Allow steak to reach room temperature before grilling on a hot grill.


Iceberg Wedge Salad

...with Blue Cheese Dressing. Blue cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise. Salt and pepper to taste. Make sure the lettuce is very cold.


Fit for A King

Compound Butter. Reduce a 1/4 cup red wine with shallots and chipotle powder. When reduced and cool, add to one stick of softened butter. Add finely chopped parsley. Roll in plastic wrap and chill until firm.
Slice into rounds and place on top of warm steak before serving.


Around the Vineyard

Flowering Grapevines

The tiny flowers are pollinated and will eventually produce clusters of grapes. In order to produce the highest quality wine, the vines are thinned, so that all the energy of the plant goes into fewer but higher quality grape clusters. In other words, the vigor will not be diluted. The resulting sugars that develop will produce higher alcohol and a superior wine. The pruning also creates a leaf canopy that shades the grapes from the harsh effects of the summer sun.
