Food pairings for a Cab Franc/Syrah blend?

squidly May 16, 2010 11:42 AM

I'm looking for some ideas for what would go really well with a nice Cab Franc/Syrah blend ("Evil Eye", Periscope Cellars, 50%/50%). The birthday boy chose the wine and I'm looking to plan a memorable meal around it.

After some browsing around I'm thinking of maybe doing something with morel mushrooms and pork (rack of, or tenderloin).

What would you make to complement a blend like this? Thanks for any ideas.

    Pork, duck, game birds. With something earthy (such as your mushrooms). Then I'd do a sauce of some sort that has blueberry in it.
