Kobe Beef Sliders with a smooth Napa Valley MerlotCrimson & Rye
198 E 54th Street, New York, NY 10022
“Napa Valley Merlot has a rich aroma with lots of red and black fruit, so it pairs really well with our Kobe sliders that have enough bulk to hold their own against the wine. The Kobe beef gives a refined flavor that matches the smooth finish of the wine.” — Max Malouf, Lead Bartender
When inside a Charlie Palmer establishment, you should expect all burgers to be taken seriously, and the Kobe sliders—topped with generous slice of American cheddar and a swipe of vodka burger sauce—is no exception. Pair it with a Napa Valley Merlot; the expressive aromas of ripe red and black fruit, hints of spice, and supple body create the perfect drinking partner for each unctuous bite of these sliders.
