7x7 SFSummer Wines to Pair With BBQs and Warm Weather:
2008 Keefer Ranch Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley
Freeman Pinot Noir ($46) is an outstanding Pinot and my top pick for steak. It's got the bold personality to stand up to any cut of meat and just about any sauce without taking anything away. Drink it alone, chill it slightly, or even drink it with chicken or fish. This is the kind of Pinot that's going to be good no matter what.
