5 Burger + Wine Pairings

For a Spicy Burger

The Burger Somm: Paul Gregutt, Contributing Editor

The Wine to Try: Tranche 2010 Estate Grown Syrah (Walla Walla Valley), $35

A burger with heat requires a substantial Syrah to wash it down. This one from Walla Walla is aromatic and powerful, tannic and loaded with oak, tobacco and vanilla accents that mingle perfectly with the burger’s spice.

Paul’s Favorite:

AK’s Burger, Andrae’s Kitchen in Walla Walla, Washington

A ground beef-and-chorizo bomb with caramelized Walla Walla sweet onions, house-made aioli and pickled green tomatoes.
