When visiting the Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse in downtown Dallas, you’re always going to have a great steak cooked to perfection. However, pairing the right wine with your meal can make your lunch or dinner really pop with flavor. Our Dallas restaurant has one of the largest selections of wine in the area and we’re proud to offer wine pairing suggestions to our guests. Here’s a few ideas on how to pair the perfect wine with your meal.
Pair Red Wines With Steaks From a Dallas Steakhouse
A great red wine would be a preferable pairing for our Buffalo Filet Mignon or our delicious Buffalo New York Strip. A good Merlot is always a great red wine choice from our extensive wine menu. The Merlot is considered one of more food-friendly wines to choose from. Depending on Its origin and how it’s aged, the flavor can be fruity with a smooth finish that pleases the palate. Another great choice is one of our Cabernet wines. This popular, full-bodied red wine with a savory flavor is great to pair with a heavy meat such as our Prime 44 Angus steaks or wild game dishes.
Pair White Wine With Chicken and Seafood
There are many places to eat in Dallas, but we offer a wide-range of dishes to suit anyone’s taste and wine preference. For guests who don’t love steak quite as much as we do, our seafood and chicken dishes pair well with a lighter weight white wine. Try a Sauvignon Blanc to complement our Tequila Sunrise Chicken. The wine’s fruit flavors pair nicely with the goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and fresh herbs stuffed inside the chicken.
If our Chicken Fried Lobster catches your eye, then consider ordering a nice Chardonnay wine to go with it. Chardonnays can vary in taste with some being described as buttery, vanilla, or floral depending on the grapes and how it’s aged. A Chardonnay made with less ripe grapes will have a lemon taste. If the Chardonnay is produced using more ripe grapes then you’ll notice a fruitier flavor when drinking it.
