Wine of the Week 

Fifty percent of the grapes for this vintage were sourced from the winery's home base in the Rutherford AVA (American Viticultural Area) and blended with Cabernet fruit from Oakville, Atlas Peak and Napa. Aged 18 months in 38 percent new American oak, the wine exhibits complexity and a firm tannin structure. Aromas of black currants, blackberries, pepper and spice lead into more ripe black fruit, cocoa and mocha on the palate. For the best results, decant an hour before serving. Enjoy with rare steak and other hearty fare. Where to buy it: Vieux Carre Wine and Spirits, Partysist's new wine shop in Metairie, Dorignac's, Vintages — A Wine Store and Rouses in Mandeville. Where to drink it: Morton's Steak House, The Gumbo Shop, Bon Ton Cafe, Flaming Torch Restaurant and Vincent's Italian Cuisine in Uptown. (Listings current at press time.)
