Pinot Noir Wine
This Grilled Beef Kofta Kebabs recipe produces flavorful kebabs, with the rich flavors of the beef alongside the herbs and spices. I would offset the robust flavors with a chilled Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir wines are generally lighter red wines without much oak. I feel that the dark cherry, unoaked flavors of a Pinot Noir would compliment the meat’s flavors.
