„This sandwich is an absolute must try; the steak is perfectly tender and the bell pepper adds a nice crunch. It might be a bit messy to eat, but that’s just part of the fun!“

Pinot Noir, 2013
A lighter, more fruit forward red wine, like a Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley is a wise match for a steak sandwich. A leaner cut of beef, such as tenderloin, doesn't require a stronger, more tannic wine as a companion. Therefore, this Pinot Noir's taut body is matchless.
