The art of making a tasty steak is very much down to personal preference, but undeniably requires good flavors. Herzog red wine makes an excellent marinade for beef steaks. The tannin molecules found in red wine soften the fats in the meat, helping to release the delicious beefy taste. The beef fat, in turn, softens the astringent qualities of the wine, helping to mellow the alcohol and produce a juicier, more fruity flavor. This red wine marinade also works well with lamb.
