German Riesling is always a nice counterpoint. I like Cru Beaujolais with fattier meats too, Cornas too.
Never would have thought to pair Riesling with Burgers, but with last night’s burgers we finished the other half of a bottle of Desire Lines Riesling. Very enjoyable together.

Re: What to pair with American Wagyu Ground Bee

Out of the wines listed I would probably go for the syrah first. I really like young juicy Loire Cab Franc and Ca Grenache with burgers.
