A Washington red that pairs well with fish

When you ask aboutthe pan-seared cod at Caffe Tosca in Hingham, don’t be surprised if general manager Chris Jule recommends a Washington State red to go with it. The wine is a 2012 Corvidae “Rook” ($9 a glass, $31.50 a bottle, $22.50 a carafe), a blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon with a splash of syrah. Jule, who does all of the wine buying for the 11-year-old Italian spot, the more casual sister to Tosca restaurant across the street, likes this pour because it’s different than others with cabernet sauvignon in the mix. “It doesn’t finish as tannic as other cabs,” he says, describing it as “easy drinking and more approachable” because of the merlot. It pairs terrifically with the cod ($25), which features oven-roasted tomato broth, shredded zucchini, and caramelized fennel, all of which give the traditionally mild fish appetizing zip and heft. Given the popularity of this pairing, we’re not surprised that this wine pro plans to keep fish-loving reds on the list for a long time to come. Caffe Tosca, 15 North St., Hingham, 781-740-9400,
