The first rule is to drink what you like. Rose isn't something I would choose with beef, but I can understand that a lot more than the folks I see drinking coffee with their steaks! Yuck!

Another thought is a Côtes du Rhône. It's a nice varietal blend (mostly red grapes) with enough character to stand up to the meat. You can get a good one for under $20 or a GREAT one if you want to spend more.

You can get a Châteauneuf du Pape for a bit over $30 and I guarantee it will be beautiful with that steak.

Thanks, I ended up getting the Chateauneuf du Pape and it was wonderful. I did also get a Malbec, but it wasn't nearly as smooth.
