My favorite Steak Shiraz is available again at your local LCBO store. The Australian Pillar Box Red 2007 is my failsafe wine when I am having steak. Sure, you can go with Cabernet Sauvignon every time but this Shiraz seems made for a steak. Maybe it’s the 15% alcohol. The bottle is easy to recognize and the price is right. It is too tannic to drink on its own – although I do just because it makes me feel manly.
