$13-$18 Retail

Chilean red blends are racking up well-deserved raves. This robust blend of 45 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 20 percent Carmenere, 20 percent Syrah and 15 percent Malbec is also a great value. Aged in French oak for nearly a year, the wine shows complex aromas of ripe blackberry, cherry, vanilla spice and leather notes. On the palate, taste concentrated black currants, plum, cassis, hints of coffee and chewy tannins. Decant an hour before serving for best flavor. Drink it with red meats, chops, game, hearty stews, casserole dishes and aged cheeses. Buy it at: Cork & Bottle, Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket, Breaux Mart and Langenstein's in Metairie, Rouses in Mandeville and some Winn-Dixies. Drink it at: Mayas. — BRENDA MAITLAND
