Relish wine experts Wini Mornaville and Charles Smothermon note when serving this with grilled steak, you need structure to your wine to stand up to the meat and the bold spices of the salsa. They recommend a well-chilled rosé in a crisp, food-friendly style will mesh well with all that's going on in the dish.
