Master chef's new line of wine

See also

Master chef Wolfgang Puck believes that wine is an essential element to any well prepared meal and his signature line of wines completes this culinary circle.

He spent more than two years fine tuning cuvees with the iconic California Indelicato family to make food friendly wine specifically with the everyday home cook in mind. This team agreed a great wine, just like a great meal, is only as good as the base ingredients.

The 2012 California Red Wine Blend ($14.99) is a dazzling combination of 49 percent merlot, 37 percent cabernet sauvignon and 14 percent zinfandel.

It is a medium-bodied wine with lush blackberry and ripe black cherry aromas. These dark fruit flavors embrace the palate with whispers of spice and toast. Merlot’s sweetness leads the parade followed by cabernet and zin.

Chef Puck recommends pairing this selection with mini burgers with Remoulade and aged cheddar or pork dishes.

Full-bodied and opulent, Puck’s 2011 cabernet sauvignon ($14.99) is 78 percent cab and 22 percent malbec. It is bold with juicy cherry and currant aromas followed by dense black cherry blackberry and coffee flavors.

Pour this with pasta and Wolfgang’s hearty beef sauce of with braised short ribs.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these wines support Keep Memory Alive Foundation.
