1.Preheat the oven to 325°.
2. Rub roast on all sides with salt and pepper. Place roast, bone side down, in a roasting pan. Loop and tie twine between each of the bones (to help the roast hold its shape as it cooks). Bake at 325° for 2 hours or until a thermometer inserted into thickest portion of roast registers 130° or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from oven. Place roast on a cutting board. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Wine note: Cabernet sauvignon is the go-to partner for red meat. However, there's another red grape that offers similar power at a great value: malbec. Zette Malbec 2003 ($12) from France has potent blackberry and black cherry fruit along with enough dry tannins to balance the juiciness and fat of the beef. —Jeffery Lindenmuth
