Food pairing for this red blend wine?

Hi All,

I have a bottle of Shepherd Carneros Estate Red and am interested in a good food pairing that is either vegetarian or else fish/shrimp. Any suggestions?

Tasting notes are pasted below. The wine is 14.2%, and a blend of Zin, Syrah and Tempranillo.

Rich aromas of blackberry and red currants with a touch of vanilla and cedar. The mouth is filled with jammy flavors of cassis, boysenberry, cherry, and plum. Ripe tannins provide an opulent finish of red fruit and spice.

Thanks!
