Wine with Standing Rib Roast

A Standing Rib Roast is a very flavorful and delicious cut of beef that is extemely tender when prepared properly. A Standing Rib Roast is found between the Short Loin and the Chuck and still has the rib bones attached.

The individual portions of a Standing Rib Roast are known as Prime Rib. In a restaurant, you should request an end piece if you want it to be less rare; or, you should request a center piece for less well done.

Because of the great flavor of a Standing Rib Roast and the fat that is in and around much of the meat, it is an ideal food to go with Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Bordeaux or Merlot. Other wines such as Pinot Noir, Red Burgundy, Zinfandel or Syrah/Shiraz will work but the bigger wines previously mentioned will be better.

You should avoid getting a very good (read as 'expensive') Cabernet, Bordeaux or Merlot that is young and very tannic. While a young tannic wine will work, you'll enjoy a wine with more age in which the tannins have subsided somewhat.
