Wine that goes with brisket

I'm thinking bordeaux? Any other ideas?

        Zinfandel. Any other questions ?? (just kidding)

          I am going to second Rioja, but do right and just grab some miller high life. I do not jest.

        2. In my experience wine pairing can be as much about the sauce and spices used in cooking/serving as it can be about the 'meat' itself. I'd think that lots of medium to full-bodied reds would work with brisket depending on how it's made. If there's a tomato-y componenet you'll probably want something a little more acidic. If it's a spicy-ish dish you could go as far as ZInfandel I'd think.

          1. Yup yup. Forgot about Zin. Deffinitely a good choice.

            1. Depending on exactly how it is done, I'd lean to a Côte-Rôtie, or an Hermitage to accompany the “smoke,” that would be in MY brisket. Next choice would be a Zin.
