Wine of the Week

If you've ever puzzled over what oak tastes like in a wine, the clouds of confusion have just parted. Fourteen months in French oak barrels imparts an intensely vanilla-oak flavor to this Cabernet Sauvignon, and a toasty wood aroma you can smell from across the room. The lofty price buys you a poof! of garnet-colored fruit, pumpkin pie spices and a great excuse to drink the whole bottle. Found at Cellars of River Ridge, Dorignac's, Elio's Wine Warehouse, Hugh's Wine Cellar, Martin Wine Cellar, Old Metairie Wines and Personal Gifts, and Wine Seller. -- Roahen
