A Californian Cabernet is an Uninspiring Partner to a Beef & Pork Stew

We had visitors and served a favourite stew from Supercook called Jarret de Boeuf en Daube. This is a beef and pork stew marinated in red wine.  We opened a bottle of Gallo Five Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 from Tesco.  This Californian red is medium-bodied with black fruit flavours.  Whilst it was inoffensive, juicy and a match for the stew, it was not a particularly sophisticated wine.
