    What red wine would be the best to serve with grilled Salmon or Tuna?

    Something fairly mild like a Merlot.

    White meat white wine, red meat red wine, or so we are told. Pink fish is a grey area. I would agree with psycheskinner and serve something like a Merlot, or a really good South African rose.

    I don't like red or white wine, but prefer sherry or port, which go with everything.

    I had the "fish must be accompanied by white wine" prejudice beaten out of me when I lived in ex-Yugoslavia for five years. Red wine was served with fish as often as white wine, and I did not have any problems with it!

    Tuna has a very strong flavour, so I personally would choose to set it against a richly-flavoured red wine. I was recently introduced to Malbec, and that would certainly fit the bill.

    A Rioja from a good year would also hold up well.

    Salmon perhaps needs something less intense. I might think of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, which is a favourite of mine. Otherwise, if I want a good red wine at a competitive price, I tend to home in onto an individually numbered bottle of Bulgarian Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. I'm going to give that a try.

    I agree with a middle of the road but great tasting Rose. A true rose is actually made from red grapes however the skins of the grapes are not left in the vat as long. The true rose should be a dry wine, meaning simply that it is not a sweet wine. Normally what gives a dry red wine its robust flavors and red tint is the skins of the grapes and the tannins in the skin. A rose is very mild and should be served at the same temperature as a white wine.

    If you prefer a red wine, a nice Pinot Noir would be excellent with grilled salmon. Salmon isn't considered white or red, so a lighter red wine works well.    It would also work with grilled tuna, or a Chardonnay if you prefer white wine.  I had salmon tonight for dinner with my favorite Cabernet, it was fine.  It's all I had in the house! smile
