This pasta dish has very unique and exciting flavors. The notes of light and dark fruit from the wine fused into the pasta, the earthy and slightly sweet aromatics, and the daring spice that comes through at the end of the bite, all surprise your palate in a new and exciting way. Enjoy this dish with any of the Uncaged wines. Each wine will awaken and intensify different flavor profiles.
This dish paired with the Uncaged Cabernet Sauvignon takes your palate on a pleasantly intense flavor excursion. The variety of aromatic flavors in the balsamic and herb chimi, the tender earthy and umami from the ribeye, and the hints of dark fruit and pepper from the wine, all really compliment one-another very well, giving your palate a flavor fiesta.
These braised short ribs are sure to be one of your family’s favorite comfort foods. Slowly cooking the meat in a Dutch oven releases incredible flavors and fall off the bone tenderness. The Uncaged wine infuses complex flavors into the meat and provide a base for a rich, savory sauce. Paired with any Z. Alexander Brown wines this dish is really exciting for your palate.
This dish takes a classic Southern vegetable and kicks it up a few notches. Roasting the Brussel sprouts and yams in the oven brings out an earthy, nutty flavor. The variety of spices and sweetness from the brown sugar are a perfect complement to the Uncaged Proprietary Red Blend. And one of the great things about this recipe is that it can be made ahead of time, and reheated in the oven in no time.
This powerful, rich dish begs for an equally full-bodied wine. Sumptuous beef tenderloin plays off the tannins in the Uncaged Cabernet Sauvignon, making for the ultimate crowd-pleasing dinner.
Dark chocolate has intense flavors. Depending on the chocolate, you can taste traces of sweet, bitter, fruity, and acidic. So the wine has to be similarly full of flavor to pair well with the chocolate. And the hint of mint really sets these cookies off when paired with wine for dessert. I recommend enjoying these cookies with a glass of the Uncaged red blend. It’s rich yet smooth body will boost all of the notes of chocolate, cherry, currant, vanilla, coffee and mint. Your palate will be immensely content.

Juicy brats are bathed in beer and wine in this satisfying, one-pan dinner. I like to make the herb aioli a day ahead so all of the flavors have time to come together. For a flavorful dish such as this, I’d head straight to a big red. The Z. Alexander Brown Uncaged Cabernet Sauvignon hits the spot perfectly.
