Merlot and a Hot Dog

Selecting a Merlot to go with
my medium rare steak
What wine should have with what meal... here is a suggestion for Merlot

When chowing down on Grilled favorites, go for a Cabernet or Merlot
Tannins in red wines give a luxurious, full-bodied flavor, making it the perfect partner to a juicy burger, BBQ sandwich, a hearty steak, or even hot dogs!  

My Favourite Dish:  A juicy, well seasoned steak with a round glass of ANY straight Merlot.
