Mendoza, Argentine / $11-$15 Retail

Grapes for this concentrated wine were sourced from the higher elevations of the Uco Valley, about 3,000 feet above sea level. The terroir imparts a freshness that is balanced with the grape's bold qualities. The wine offers aromas of black fruit, cocoa and hints of spice, as well as hazelnut and almond from aging in oak. On the palate, taste plum, toffee and cherry flavors. Decant several hours before serving. Drink it with steak, duck, pork, burgers, strong cheeses or wild game. Buy it at: Breaux Mart, Prytania Liquor Store, Zuppardo's Family Supermarket, most Rouses, Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket, Langenstein's and Canseco's in Metairie. Drink it at: Maximo's Italian Grill, Hoshun Restaurant and Theo's Pizza.— Brenda Maitland
