2006 Paso Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 

Paso Robles, California / $12-$16 Retail

This bold, robust wine was aged 15 months in a combination of new French and American oak. Intense aromas of dark berries, cocoa, oak, earthy notes and a hint of mint are followed on the palate by flavors of black cherry, currant, blackberry, more toasty notes and a touch of cranberry. It has firm tannins, balanced acidity and a lingering finish. Pair it with steak, grilled meats, ribs, roasts and other hardy dishes. Buy it at: Rouses, Breaux Mart, Langenstein's in Metairie and Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket. Drink it at: Mona Lisa and Deanie's Seafood. — Brenda Maitland
